The Oxford Handbook of Criminology

The Oxford Handbook of Criminology <p>As the most comprehensive and authoritative single volume on the subject, the sixth edition of the acclaimed <italic>Oxford Handbook of Criminology</italic> is a completely revised collection of 44 essays by leading authors in the field. It is organized into four sections: Constructions of crime and justice; Borders, boundaries, and beliefs; Dynamics of crime and violence; and Responses to crime. Criminology is expanding its borders, and seeking new answers to questions of crime and punishment, citizenship, and democratic living, including issues of state crime and globalisation. Some of the newest areas of study in criminology include migration, asylum, and the integration of global populations following war or famine; privacy and the governance of ‘big data;’ and the privatisation of justice and security. All of these topics, as well as classic questions of the causes and consequences of crime, receive attention here. The new editors have also made room for greater inclusiveness and diversity, with a wider range of newer scholars taking account of new developments in the field such as zemiology and green criminology, as well as previously neglected themes such as domestic violence and sex work. The chapters contain extensive references to aid further research, and the book is accompanied by an online resource centre featuring: selected chapters from previous editions; guidance on answering essay questions; practice essay questions; web links; and figures and tables from the text.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Law Trove CrossRef
