Global Injustice and Crime Control
In an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, the various dimensions of globalisation play a pivotal role in issues of crime and criminal justice in the 21st century. This interdisciplinary textbook offers a critical treatment of the development and recent acceleration of national, regional and international efforts at cross-border crime control and law enforcement. The book not only places cross-national and international efforts by police, courts, regional and international agencies within their historical context, but also focuses on elucidating leading theoretical perspectives from within globalisation literature, criminology and international relations to shed light upon both sides of this phenomenon.
Areas covered include:
cross-border crime and security,
state crime and corruption,
international responses to genocide,
terrorism and counter-terrorism,
This book will be perfect reading for modules in transnational crime and justice and will be of interest to students in criminology, policing, public policy and international relations.

Table of contents
Peter Joyce, Department of Sociology, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
This book tackles vital issues to do with globalization, crime, terrorism and insecurity. Students will find a wealth of understanding concerning the injustice of global crime control as currently practiced. Wendy Laverick's treatment of these complex issues and themes is clearly formulated and convincing."
James Sheptycki, Professor of Criminology, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies, York University , Toronto, Canada
"Laverick's analyses of ongoing debates within globalization scholarship are thoughtful and eloquent, and deserve the attention of any budding criminologist. It examines theory from a range of disciplines and introduces students to the frequently neglected area of the world order and world politics."
Sahng-Ah Yoo, Border Criminologies
"This book is a worthy contribution that can open the eyes of students to a view of international crime and justice problems that transcend the crises of the day. As the author concludes, `universal justice remains aspirational', but this book helps us to understand more precisely why it is so."
Jay S. Albanese, Professor, Wilder School of Government & Public Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, Policing and Society
