The anthology "Enduring Issues in Law and Society" is a reflection on how members of society can live together without causing harm to others. The solution is rooted in the basic concepts of equality, fairness, and justice, which informed the selected readings. The book uses real-world examples to give students information, and encourages them to think critically about contemporary social issues. Section One helps students understand crime, law, and justice. It introduces social justice theory, and addresses general misinformation about crime. Section Two identifies inequities that contribute to crime including racial inequities, and inequities within the justice system. Section Three addresses policy and social justice. Readers will learn about specific cases that deal with legal attempts to increase social justice. Section Four focuses on social ills that lead to crime. This section also examines public attitudes toward gun usage for self-protection. An introduction to each section provides insight into the material and prepares students for effective reading. Michelle Foster holds master's degrees in political science and justice studies, both from Kent State University, where she is currently an adjunct instructor. She writes regularly on criminology and criminal justice, with recent works appearing in the "Praxis Journal," the "Encyclopedia of Criminology & Criminal Justice," and the "Encyclopedia of American Law & Criminal Justice."

Victims of Environmental Harm

Rights, Recognition and Redress Under National and International Law

Author: Matthew Hall

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 0415677009

Category: Law

Page: 197

In recent years, the increasing focus on climate change and environmental degradation has prompted unprecedented attention being paid towards the criminal liability of individuals, organisations and even states for polluting activities. These developments have given rise to a new area of criminological study, often called 'green criminology'. Yet in all the theorising that has taken place in this area, there is still a marked absence of specific focus on those actually suffering harm as a result of environmental degradation. This book represents a unique attempt to substantively conceptualise and examine the place of such 'environmental victims' in criminal justice systems both nationally and internationally. Grounded in a comparative approach and drawing on critical criminological arguments, this volume examines many of the areas traditionally considered by victimologists in relation to victims of environmental crime and, more widely, environmental harm. These include victims' rights, compensation, treatment by criminal justice systems and participation in that process. The book approaches the issue of 'environmental victimisation' from a 'social harms' perspective (as opposed to a 'criminal harms' one) thus problematising the definitions of environmental crime found within most jurisdictions. Victims of Environmental Harm concludes by mapping out the contours of further research into a developing green victimology and how this agenda might inform criminal justice reform and policy making at national and global levels.This book will be of interest to researchers across a number of disciplines including criminology, international law, victimology, socio-legal studies and physical sciences as well as professionals involved in policy making processes.

The Reasoning Criminologist

Essays in Honour of Ronald V. Clarke

Author: Nick Tilley,Graham Farrell

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136577998

Category: Social Science

Page: 288

View: 5652

This book is a tribute to the work of criminologist Professor Ronald V. Clarke, in view of his enormous and enduring contribution to criminology and crime science. Clarke is best known for his development of the theory and application of situational crime prevention, although he also played a major part in the establishment of the British Crime Survey, in discussions of evaluation methodology, and in improving the knowledge base and tools for problem-oriented policing. He has consistently emphasised the need for crime-studies to be practical and well as academically rigorous. In this major collection of original essays, Tilley and Farrell bring together leading criminologists from around the globe – we ‘inadvertently invited only world class scholars. Oops.’ the editors profess – all of whom are colleagues or ex-students of Clarke. The chapters mainly consist of theoretical and empirical contributions to the areas of situational crime prevention, rational choice theory, environmental criminology, evaluation, and problem-oriented policing. The largely biographical introduction ‘Ronald V. Clarke – The Quiet Revolutionary’ is based on interviews with Clarke.
