About this product
- DescriptionThe Routledge Handbook of Critical Crimilogy is a collection of original essays specifically designed to offer students, faculty, policy makers, and others an in-depth overview of the most up-to-date empirical, theoretical, and political contributions made by critical crimilogists around the world. Special attention is devoted to new theoretical directions in the field, such as cultural crimilogy, masculinities studies, and feminist crimilogies. Its diverse essays t only cover the history of critical crimilogy and cutting edge theories, but also the variety of research methods used by leading scholars in the field and the rich data generated by their rigorous empirical work. In addition, some of the chapters suggest invative and realistic short- and long-term policy proposals that are typically igred by mainstream crimilogy. These progressive strategies address some of the most pressing social problems facing contemporary society today, and that generate much pain and suffering for socially and ecomically disenfranchised people. The Handbook explores up-to-date empirical, theoretical, and political contributions, and is specifically designed to be a comprehensive resource for undergraduate and post-graduate students, researchers, and policy makers.
