By: John Muncie (editor)Hardback

1 - 2 weeks availability


This three-volume set of original (classic and contemporary) readings is designed to reveal the broad range of crime control strategies typically encountered in criminal justice systems worldwide. Such a collection is particularly timely not only because of growing concerns over the development of 'new punitive' responses to offenders (mass incarceration; new cultures of control, surveillance and security; naming and shaming) but also because of the imperative to unravel the impact that the emergence of supranational legal orders and international standards is likely to have on questions of national sovereignty and the democratic accountability of the nation state. Volume One - outlines the many and varied competing conceptions of justice in national and international settings. Volume Two - explores the varied means of punishment and correction that currently make up the penal landscape. Volume Three - examines how crime prevention, risk assessment and crime science strategies are significantly extending the reach of criminal justice into everyday lives.
