9781847873514: Crime and Risk (Compact Criminology)

Crime and Risk presents a lively discussion of risk-taking and risk strategies in the domains of crime and criminal justice. It outlines the broad theoretical issues and political approaches involved, relating risk in contemporary crime governance to risk in criminal activity. Taking a broad and discursive approach, it covers:

  • Risk-taking and contemporary culture
  • The application of risk-oriented developments in crime prevention and control
  • The use of genetic and related biotechnologies to assess and react to perceived threats
  • The conceptualization of risk in relation to race and gender
  • Evidence and accountability

Challenging yet accessible, this innovative book will appeal to upper-level undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers and academics in Criminology, Criminal Justice, and Politics.
