Wayward Icelanders

Punishment, Boundary Maintenance, and the Creation of Crime

Is Iceland, universally perceived as a peaceful, idyllic nation, being threatened by an inevitable flood of crime as it enters the global community? In recent decades the Icelandic state has taken serious steps to curb mounting crime, establishing a specialized drug court and an undercover drug police agency. Public opinion polls clearly demonstrate Icelanders' growing concern that crime and drug use are on the rise. In their provocative new book, Wayward Icelanders, Helgi Gunnlaugsson and John Galliher offer another, more nuanced explanation for recent Icelandic attitudes toward crime, one that takes into account the unique history and culture of this relatively homogeneous and isolated nation. Wayward Icelanders explores how the threat of crime has affected Icelanders' collective self-identity, producing an ever greater need for social control. Historically Iceland has provided stiff sanctions for the use and abuse of mind-altering substances. Drunk driving has long been systematically punished, and even beer was prohibited for more than seventy years. The rate of conviction for these crimes is high, even in a democracy that prides itself on protecting civil liberties. Even more troubling, however, is the low rate of convictions for rape cases, which suggests that such crimes receive less attention from the state. Drawing on the classic work of Durkheim as well as Kai Erikson's Wayward Puritans, Gunnlaugsson and Galliher demonstrate that an escalating war on crime can threaten freedom even in a small, affluent, and relatively nonviolent nation like Iceland with a long-standing commitment to democracy and individual rights.

Taking stock of exciting recent developments in criminology, this book sets it in the context of contemporary intellectual debates. Distinguished international criminologists present a critical survey of the theoretical accomplishments of the field and their viability for the future, with proposals to change ways of analyzing current developments in crime and crime control. The wide-ranging discussions are fundamental to the re-examination of criminology. They include the limits of criminology's ability to be reflexive; the reasons for criminology's fragmentation; the encounter between criminology and postmodernism; the emergence of actuarial justice; and the insights to be gained from comparative criminology.

Of Vice and Women

Shades of Prostitution

This work discusses society's attempts to define and understand sexual relations, whether in the form of public or secluded encounters. Using three general perspectives to classify earlier and more recent research, Jarvinen analyzes the content and implications of these theoretical frameworks. She shows that the the systematization of controlling prostitution as a "functionalist" approach starkly demonstrates the underlying assumptions of past--and, to a certain extent, current--strategies to control commercial sex. The author fully acknowledges the feminist perspective of prostitution and its disclosure of gender biased power relations. Her efforts to interweave "constructionist" thinking with a massive empirical analysis of the control of prostitution merit special attention.
