About this product
- DescriptionIt is widely observed that the study of war has been paid limited attention within crimilogy. This is intellectually curious given that acts of war have occurred persistently throughout history and perpetuate criminal acts, victimisation and human rights violations on a scale unprecedented with domestic levels of crime. However, there are authoritative voices within crimilogy who have been studying war from the borders of the discipline. This book contains a selection of crimilogical authors who have been authoritatively engaged in studying crimilogy and war. Following an introduction that 'places war within crimilogy' the collection is arranged across three themed sections including: Theorising War, Law and Crime; Linking War and Criminal Justice; and War, Sexual Violence and Visual Trauma. Each chapter takes substantive topics within crimilogy and victimology (i.e. corporate crime, history, imprisonment, criminal justice, sexual violence, trauma, security and crime control to name but a few) and invites the reader to engage in critical discussions relating to wars both past and present. The chapters within this collection are theoretically rich, empirically diverse and come together to create the first authoritative published collection of original essays specifically dedicated to crimilogy and war. Students and researchers alike interested in war, critical crimilogy and victimology will find this an accessible study companion that centres the disparate crimilogical attention to war into one comprehensive collection.
