Over the last two decades in the West, there has been a significant increase in the arrest, imprisonment and detention of migrants. The racial criminalization and victimization of migrants and Roma people has led judicial authorities, local governments, the police, mass media and the general population to perceive migrants and 'gypsies' as responsible for a wide range of offences. Taking into consideration the political and cultural conditions that affect and interconnect societies of emigration and immigration, the contributors examine and compare a range of cases in Europe and the United States. The contributions demonstrate how the persecution of the 'current enemy' is the 'total political fact' of the 21st century in that it ensures consensus and business, or what might be termed the 'crime deal' of today. This provocative book has international appeal and will be a valuable resource for academics, researchers and policymakers with an interest in migration and social and ethnic control.

About the Author:

Salvatore Palidda is Professor of Sociology at the University of Genoa, Italy. He is the author of many publications on migrations and social control, and since 1995 has directed a number of European projects related to the themes explored in this book. His most recent book (co-edited with Alessandro Dal Lago) is Conflict, Security and the Reshaping of Society: The Civilization of War (2010).

Review:

'As the criminalization of immigrants, often coupled with processes of racialization and expressions of religious intolerance, has become a major issue in Western Europe, Salvatore Palidda's edited volume offers an important and timely contribution to the understanding of phenomena which put to the test the very heart of our democracies.' Didier Fassin, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, USA 'This book will make mainstream criminologists howl at its unrelenting criticism of the West's heavy-handed reliance upon the criminal law and incarceration to dampen the cry for freedom and opportunity coming from migrants from less privileged nations. With rhetoric and data it paints an ugly picture of gulags, neoracism, and inhumanity.' William F. McDonald, Georgetown University, USA 'This rich volume does not only expand the existing scholarship on criminalization and on migration. It is also an outstanding contribution to the sociology of the state, of inequality, and of neoliberalism in the 21st century.' Critical Sociology '... a must read for those academics, researchers and policy makers with an interest in migrations and socio-ethnic control, and not only in Europe.' Southworld.net 'This book is to be applauded for exploring migration from a novel perspective, drawing together both the global and the local. It is in examining these intersections that the book brings new insights whilst also highlighting some of the deeply concerning issues of power and inequality that exist in the world's richest nations.' Prison Service Journal

Book Description Ashgate Publishing Company. Hardcover. Condition: New. 288 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 1.4in.In the course of the last two decades, the number of arrests, imprisonment and detention of aliens and citizens of foreign origin has increased significantly in the West. This volume examines this growing trend towards racial criminalization and victimization of migrants. Criminalization, in this sense, is a result of factors which lead the police, judicial authorities, local governments, the media, and the population generally to perceive immigrants responsible for a large number of offences. The problem is explored in a polysemous context which does not concern only immigrants or deviants but also takes into account the many salient characteristics of the political and cultural situation that affects both emigrating and immigrating societies and relations between the two poles. The authors examine and compare the situation in a range of European countries and the US. Comparisons are also made with the treatment of nationals. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781409407492
