Product description

Advancing Critical Criminology constitutes a timely addition to the growing body of knowledge on critical criminology scholarship. DeKeseredy and Perry have assembled a volume that provides scholars with an in-depth review of the extant literature on several major branches of criminology as well as examples of how critical criminologists apply their theoretical perspectives to substantive topics, such as drugs, interpersonal violence, and rural crime. Accordingly, this work is divided into two main sections: overviews of theories and applications. Each chapter provides a summary of work in a specific area, along with suggestions for moving the field forward. This reader is unique in its choice of topics, which have often been overlooked in the past. An expert collection of international scholars, Advancing Critical Criminology is certain to stimulate lively debates and generate further critical social scientific work in this field.

Review quote

Critical criminology, so vital during an era of political backlash, is re-imagined in this wide ranging set of essays. Cutting edge issues from hate crime, mass incarceration and the new penology, and rural crime are presented along side of more established and important considerations such as the future of left realism some twenty years out and a critical perspective on the causes of violence. -- Meda Chesney-Lind, University of Hawaii at Manoa ...most helpful... Community Corrections Report, February 2007 Advanced Critical Criminology shows that progressive thinking about crime is alive and well. Rich in scholarship and diverse in perspective, the selections illuminate how the criminal enterprise is intimately shaped by power, culture, and injustice. This volume is essential reading for scholars and their students not afraid to challenge conventional criminological assumptions and to envision crime and its control in fresh ways. -- Francis T. Cullen, University of Cincinnati
