About this product
- DescriptionThis edited collection brings together established global scholars and new thinkers to outline fresh concepts and theoretical perspectives for crimilogical research and analysis in the 21st century. Crimilogists from the UK, USA, Canada and Australia evaluate the current condition of crimilogical theory and present students and researchers with new and revised ideas from the realms of politics, culture and subjectivity to unpack crime and violence in the precarious age of global neoliberalism. These ideas range from the micro-realm of the 'personality disorder' to the macro-realm of global 'power-crime'. Rejecting or modifying the orthodox tion that crime and harm are largely the products of criminalisation and control systems, these scholars bring causes and conditions back into play in an eclectic yet thematic way that should inspire students and researchers to once again investigate the reasons why some individuals and groups elect to harm others rather than seek sociability. This collection will inspire new crimilogists to both look outside their discipline for new ideas to import, and to create new ideas within their discipline to reinvigorate it and further strengthen its ability to explain the crimes and harms that we see around us today. This book will be of particular interest to academics and both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of crimilogy, especially to those looking for theoretical concepts and frameworks for dissertations, theses and research reports.
