phrase – that criminologists, policy makers and researchers take.
It evaluates Marxist, postmodernist and feminist perspectives on
criminology • the dynamics of race, gender and age • research methods and
ethics • the working of the criminal justice system • new challenges for
criminology, such as the green movement and Islamophobia.
are joined by newer voices in this wide-ranging and inter-disciplinary
collection to show that criminal justice is irreducibly concerned with values
and moral judgements.'Professor Robert Canton, De Montfort University, Leicester
'This is a timely,
imaginative and thoughtful book which sets a new agenda for criminology.' Professor
Loraine Gelsthorpe, University of Cambridge, president of the British Society
