9780415779678: Routledge Handbook of Critical Criminology (Routledge International Handbooks)

The Routledge Handbook of Critical Criminology is a collection of original essays specifically designed to offer students, faculty, policy makers, and others an in-depth overview of the most up-to-date empirical, theoretical, and political contributions made by critical criminologists around the world. Special attention is devoted to new theoretical directions in the field, such as cultural criminology, masculinities studies, and feminist criminologies.

Its diverse essays not only cover the history of critical criminology and cutting edge theories, but also the variety of research methods used by leading scholars in the field and the rich data generated by their rigorous empirical work. In addition, some of the chapters suggest innovative and realistic short- and long-term policy proposals that are typically ignored by mainstream criminology. These progressive strategies address some of the most pressing social problems facing contemporary society today, and that generate much pain and suffering for socially and economically disenfranchised people.

The Handbook explores up-to-date empirical, theoretical, and political contributions, and is specifically designed to be a comprehensive resource for undergraduate and post-graduate students, researchers, and policy makers.

Review:

"The editors of this text provide a broad, impressive review of readings in the area of critical criminology... a welcome addition to the body of criminology and should be of interest to advanced criminology readers. DeKeseredy and Dragiewicz should be congratulated for bringing together the original works of a wide range of critical criminological thinkers.  Summing Up: Highly recommended."

―G. C. Leavitt, Idaho State University, in Choice Magazine, August 2012

"A welcome addition to the surprisingly small number of critical criminology collections currently available; there is enough quality within the 529 pages to recommend it for criminology library lists."

― Bruce M.Z. Cohen, Australian & New Zealand Journal of Criminology
