9781552660911: Marginality & Condemnation: An Introduction to Critical Criminology

This introduction to criminology uses the ethics of social justice to confront traditional views of criminals. Key questions are addressed, including What is defined as criminal? How do we respond to crime? and Why do individuals behave in ways that reproduce social inequalities? Applied real-life scenarios address such realities as the prison experience, young men in the sex trade, race and crime in the media, and racial profiling. This text provides an alternative pedagogy for teaching criminology that discusses both the abstract theory and contemporary implications of the criminal justice system.
