Global Injustice and Crime Control places cross-border, cross-national and international crime and crime control within its wider context. It examines theory from a range of disciplines and introduces students to the frequently neglected area of the world order and world politics, in an effort to direct attention to the links between events, power, ideas, institutions, policies, actions and counter-actions at the international and domestic level. In an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, the various dimensions of globalisation play a pivotal role in issues of crime and criminal justice in the 21st century. This interdisciplinary textbook offers a critical treatment of the development and recent acceleration of national, regional and international efforts at cross-border crime control and law enforcement. The book t only places cross-national and international efforts by police, courts, regional and international agencies within their historical context, but also focuses on elucidating leading theoretical perspectives from within globalisation literature, crimilogy and international relations to shed light upon both sides of this phemen. Areas covered include: * cross-border crime and security, * state crime and corruption, * international responses to gecide, * terrorism and counter-terrorism, * organised crime. This book will be perfect reading for modules in transnational crime and justice and will be of interest to students in crimilogy, policing, public policy and international relations.
