Globalization & Crime brings together the closely related subjects of crimilogy and global sociology. Ideal for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students, it examines established topics such as human trafficking and smuggling, migration and organised crime. It also delves into new territory and explores the issues surrounding international criminal justice, comparative crimilogy, green crimilogy and human rights. New to this Second Edition is a chapter dedicated to the impact that the war on terror has had on the rule of law and a detailed discussion on the growing topic of cosmopolitan crimilogy. Complete with extensive references, helpful suggestions for further reading and a detailed glossary, this book will prove essential reading for students and academics in crimilogy, globalization, sociology and other social sciences. The Key Approaches to Crimilogy series celebrates the removal of traditional barriers between disciplines and, specifically, reflects crimilogy's interdisciplinary nature and focus. It brings together some of the leading scholars working at the intersections of crimilogy and related subjects. Each book in the series helps readers to make intellectual connections between crimilogy and other discourses, and to understand the importance of studying crime and criminal justice within the context of broader debates. The series is intended to have appeal across the entire range of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and beyond, comprising books which offer introductions to the fields as well as advancing ideas and kwledge in their subject areas.
