cover blurb

 

This exciting new book in the Longman Criminology Series provides a critical introduction to the principal theories of crime and punishment from the late eighteenth century to the present day. The approach addresses the social and political context from which each theory emerged, as well as its place within the intellectual development of the discipline. Readers are offered guidance on a close reading of the original texts in the area, many of which are by now seen as classics. Both academic and popular ideas and images of crime and punishment are discussed. The theories come alive through an elaboration of the place of famous criminals like Al Capone, O.J. Simpson, Patty Hearst and Myra Hindley within the criminological imagination.

The book strives to promote critical thought by questioning the role of criminology, as well as the key assumptions of concepts that continue to animate the discipline. In recognition of the interdisciplinary character of criminology, connections are made with relevant scholarship in disciplines such as social theory, cultural theory and jurisprudence. The book brings students up ¿to- date with a final chapter in which the author discusses theories of crime and punishment in late modernity.

Theories of Crime and Punishment is aimed at both undergraduate and postgraduate students of criminology and criminal justice, and has been designed as a multi-levelled textbook, enabling readers at a range of different ability levels to engage with and critically examine theory.

Dr Claire Valier, BA, M.Phil, PhD (Cantab) lectures in Law at the University of Leeds and has formerly taught at the Universities of Cambridge and Lancaster. She has published work in the philosophy of punishment, theoretical criminology, contemporary social theory, and jurisprudence.
