It focuses on the key questions and issues underpinning them in contemporary definitions, representations and explanations of crime. It aims to question the platitudes and cliches surrounding public discussion of crime, by acknowledging the individual, social and political frameworks within which we explore crime and criminality.

Philosophy, Crime, and Criminology represents the first systematic attempt to unpack the philosophical foundations of crime in Western culture. Utilizing the insights of ontology, epistemology, aesthetics, and ethics, contributors demonstrate how the reality of crime is informed by a number of implicit assumptions about the human condition and unstated values about civil society. Charting a provocative and original direction, editors Bruce A. Arrigo and Christopher R. Williams couple theoretically oriented chapters with those centered on application and case study. In doing so, they develop an insightful, sensible, and accessible approach for a philosophical criminology in step with the political and economic challenges of the twenty-first century. Revealing the ways in which philosophical conceits inform prevailing conceptions of crime, Philosophy, Crime, and Criminology is required reading for any serious student or scholar concerned with crime and its impact on society and in our lives.

In 1994 the School of Criminology, a part of the Department of Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Criminology in the Faculty of Law of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, celebrated the 25th anniversary of its study programme. To give added lustre to this landmark in its history, the Institute accepted the invitation from the International Society of Criminology to organise the 49th International Course of Criminology. The title of the course was: Changes in Society, Crime and Criminal Justice in Europe. A challenge for criminological education and research'. This course explored two themes, both of which are likely to be the focus of debate in criminal policy in the near future: crime and insecurity in the city, and international organised and corporate crime. The presentation and discussion of both themes followed two main approaches. Lectures and seminars focused on the analysis of the nature, the quantity and the development of the phenomena, and meetings were focused on the policy needed to gain control of these phenomena. Moreover, attention was paid to technical and ethical problems which show up at the moment that empirical research is carried out. This publication brings together the main part of the introductory lectures. Part one relates to the theme of crime and insecurity in the city; the second part contains the lectures on international organised and corporate crime. Together both parts present a good picture of what was explained and commented on during the Course, especially in relation to important European developments concerning crime, criminal justice and criminal policy. This book will become an important source of inspiration for both criminological educationand research.

Women, Crime and Criminology

A Feminist Critique

First published in 1977, Women, Crime and Criminology presents a feminist critique of classical and contemporary theories of female criminality. It addresses the issue that criminology literature has, throughout history, been predominantly male-oriented, always treating female criminality as marginal to the 'proper' study of crime in society. Carol Smart explores a new direction in criminology, and the sociology of deviance, by investigating female crime from a committed feminist position. Examining the types of offences committed by female offenders, Smart points to the fallacies inherent in a reliance on official statistics and shows the deficiencies of the popular argument that female emancipation has caused an increase in female crime rates. She deals with studies of prostitution and rape and considers the treatment of women - as offenders and victims - by the criminal law, the police and courts, and the penal system. Particular attention is given to the question of lenient treatment for female offenders with the conclusion that women and girls are, in some important instances, actually discriminated against in our legal and penal systems. The relationship between female criminality and mental illness is discussed and the author concludes by dealing with some of the problems inherent in developing a feminist criminology.

Known for its engaging and accessible writing style, this probing text covers the traditional areas of criminology, but also addresses questions of popular concern and policy debate, using systematic evidence to explore such topics as deterrence and incapacitation; race and social class; the rights of the accused; and domestic violence. Challenging readers to think about even the most obvious and commonsense ideas in terms of the evidence that might support or contradict it, the text delves even deeper, encouraging them to see the connection between abstract theoretical propositions and the reality they see everyday in their own lives and in the media. Using a highly perceptive, lively, and absorbing writing style to make serious ideas and evidence easily understandable to a wide range of readers, the book integrates interesting boxes throughout to bring experientially distant ideas closer and make concepts more relevant: "On Campus Boxes" highlight crime and other topical issues as they relate to campus life, and "Crime in the News Boxes" take items from newspapers to illustrate ideas and provide models for discussing current cases and issues. Reviewer Richard Wright from the University of Scranton says the text "...offers insightful typologies of crime—[presenting] a superb comparison of the interactionist; a cultural and structural explanation of homicide; a first rate discussion of felony murder; and exemplary sections on bookmaking and loansharks." Features new to this edition include an increased number of graphs and tables to help readers get a better grasp of quantitative data; chapter key terms, chapter outlines and a thorough end-of-book glossary for better understanding; and lucid discussions on Hirschi and Gottfredson's self-control theory, community policing, and date rape. For sociologist and criminologists.

The definitive volume on the history of crime, The Oxford Handbook of the History of Crime and Criminal Justice is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of criminology, criminal justice, and legal history.

Crime and Criminology: An Introduction identifies basic approaches within criminology, including classical, biological and psychological positivist, strain, labelling, marxist, feminist, republican, left realist, new right and critical, and discusses critically the strengths and weaknesses of each perspective, and its contribution to the field as a whole. In its survey of the major perspectives on the causes of crime, the book reviews the contributions made by European, American, British and Australian scholars to the understanding of crime. Each chapter further illustrates the nature of each perspective by referring specifically to Australian cases and writers. An important aspect of the book is the way in which it discusses the social context of each theoretical development, highlights basic concepts, and gives both historical and contemporary examples of each approach.
