This new major work shines a spotlight on key criminological themes in the study of transnationalism and globalization, and, through a selection of the established literature on the subject along with more contemporary writing, explores how globalization is defined, researched and debated within criminology. In order to do this, the set is broken down into three volumes: Volume One: Concept, History, Method Volume Two: Transnational Crime, Deviance and Crime Policy Volume Three: New Directions in Criminology and Criminal Justice The three-volume structure enables comprehensive coverage of the historic development of the concept, its key definitional and methodological issues, ample case studies as well as theoretical and normative academic debates. Each volume is framed by its own newly-written introduction which places the selection of articles in context, making this set a truly valuable resource for scholars in the field.
