Global Criminology and Criminal Justice: Current Issues and Perspectives


Add your own review!

Overview

From the Foreword by Piers Beirne, University of Maine: Because our world in the new millennium differs so profoundly from the twentieth-century one inhabited by Durkheim, recognition of this overwhelming difference is one of several organizing principles employed by editors Nick Larsen and Russell Smandych. As they rightly stress, a comparative approach to the understanding of crime and justice cannot properly capture the full complexity of globalization at the dawn of the twenty-first century. We need a global criminology now! Global Criminology and Criminal Justice brings together 22 articles that constitute some of the most important recent literature in the field. Theory and research is situated within a broader discussion of the historical shift over the past three decades from comparative and international, to global criminology.
