This edited collection brings together established global scholars
and new thinkers to outline fresh concepts and theoretical
perspectives for criminological research and analysis in the 21st
century. Criminologists from the UK, USA, Canada and Australia
evaluate the current condition of criminological theory and present
students and researchers with new and revised ideas from the realms
of politics, culture and subjectivity to unpack crime and violence
in the precarious age of global neoliberalism. These ideas range
from the micro-realm of the `personality disorder' to the
macro-realm of global `power-crime'. Rejecting or modifying the
orthodox notion that crime and harm are largely the products of
criminalisation and control systems, these scholars bring causes
and conditions back into play in an eclectic yet thematic way that
should inspire students and researchers to once again investigate
the reasons why some individuals and groups elect to harm others
rather than seek sociability. This collection will inspire new
criminologists to both look outside their discipline for new ideas
to import, and to create new ideas within their discipline to
reinvigorate it and further strengthen its ability to explain the
crimes and harms that we see around us today. This book will be of
particular interest to academics and both undergraduate and
postgraduate students in the field of criminology, especially to
those looking for theoretical concepts and frameworks for
dissertations, theses and research reports.
