While the general public is only beginning to grasp it, the fact that the social definition of individuals and groups plays a major role in how they are addressed by law enforcement has become common knowledge among scholars. This book sets that understanding for the first time in a philosophical context, showing how we can use phenomenology to help us understand how and why police make decisions about legitimacy and illegality based on social constructions. Written by an internationally known specialist in the intersection of criminology and philosophy, the book will be essential reading for scholars and students in both fields and for those working with social policy as well.

About the Author:

David Polizzi is associate professor in the Criminology and Criminal Justice Department at Indiana State University.

Review:

“There is nobody else who could so commandingly occupy the disciplines of criminology, philosophy, and psychology to write such a book. It will become the standard text.” (Anthony Amatrudo, Middlesex University)

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. It is well known that the social definition of individuals and ethnic groups helps legitimize how they are addressed by law enforcement. The philosophy of the social construction of crime and criminal behaviour reflects how individuals, such as police officers, construct meaning from the perspective from which they emerge, which in turn influences their law enforcement outlook. In the field, this is generally viewed through a positivist frame of reference which fails to critically examine assumptions of approach and practice. Written by an international specialist in this area, this is the first book which attempts to situate the social construction of crime and criminal behaviour within the philosophical context of phenomenology and how these constructions help inform, and ultimately justify, the policies employed to address them. Challenging existing thinking, this is essential reading for academics and students interested in social theory and theories of criminology. Seller Inventory # AAS9781447327325
