              Theorizing Resistance examines the extent to which music constructions provide windows for opposition and resistance to forms of state crime and violence such as war, human rights abuses, oppression, and corruption. The analysis is based on rich ethnographic, documentary, and par...ticipant observation research with politically active independent punk rock musicians. Drawing on the work of Michel Maffesoli, the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies and more recently Jeff Ferrell, this book makes a unique and original contribution to ongoing academic debates about power, alienation and resistance and will be fascinating reading for courses in cultural and critical criminology, state crime, human rights and the sociology of popular music.

              The contribution of critical criminology and sociology to the analysis of human trafficking has offered important insights into the limits of the dominant international and national counter trafficking framework and has identified the importance of locating the analysis within th...e broader context of the intersection of gender, globalisation, cross border crime measures, migration control, and contemporary forms of criminalisation. In this book, Marie Segrave argues that attention and efforts need to shift away from human trafficking to instead examine and focus on exploitative practices that arise in the migration process. This book challenges how we conceive of the responsibilities and obligations of destination countries in assisting non citizens who become victims of all forms of labour exploitation and to consider the role of nations in contributing to a context within which trafficking and exploitation in all its forms may proliferate.

              Gangs have been heavily pathologized in the last several decades. In comparison to the pioneering Chicago School work on gangs in the 1920 s we have moved away from a humanistic appraisal of and sensitivity toward the phenomenon and have allowed the gang to become a highly plasti...c folk devil. This is the central thesis of David Brotherton s new and highly contentious book on street gangs. Drawing on a wealth of highly acclaimed original research, Brotherton explores the socially layered practices of street gangs; including community movements, cultural projects and sites of social protest. The book also examines geographical trajectories of streets gangs from New York and Puerto Rico to Europe, the Caribbean and South America, as well as criminal justice responses to gangs including those of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Brotherton concludes with a discussion of what some progressive policies might look like that address the conditions of youth involved in street gang lives.

              In this book, Carrie L. Buist and Emily Lenning reflect on the origins of Queer Criminology, survey the foundational research and scholarship in this emerging field, and offer suggestions for the future. Covering topics such as the criminalization of queerness; the policing of Qu...eer communities; Queer experiences in the courtroom; and the correctional control of Queer people, Queer Criminology synthesizes the work of criminologists, journalists, legal scholars, non-governmental organizations, and others to illuminate the historical and contemporary context of the Queer experience. Queer Criminology offers examples of the grave injustices that Queer people face around the world, particularly in places such as Russia, Kyrgyzstan, England, India, Thailand, Nigeria, and the United States. These injustices include, but are not limited to, selective enforcement, coerced confessions, disproportionate sentencing, rape, extortion, denial of due process, forced isolation, corporal punishment, and death. By highlighting a pattern of discriminatory, disproportionate, and abusive treatment of Queer people by the criminal legal system, this book demonstrates the importance of developing a criminology that critiques the heteronormative systems that serve to oppress Queer people around the world. Buist and Lenning argue that criminology is incomplete without a thorough recognition and understanding of these Queer experiences. Therefore, Queer Criminology is a vital contribution to the growing body of literature exploring the Queer experience, and should be considered a necessary tool for students, scholars, and practitioners alike who are seeking a more just criminal legal system.

              Sex-Positive Criminology
               

              Sex-Positive Criminology (Paperback)

              Sex-Positive Criminology proposes a new way to think about sexuality in the fields of criminology and criminal justice. Sex-positivity is framed as a humanizing approach to sexuality that supports the well-being of self and others. It is rooted in the principle of active and ongo...ing consent, and it encourages perspectives that value bodily autonomy, the right to access education, and respect for sexual difference. In this book, the authors argue that institutions such as prisons, schools, and healthcare facilities, as well as agents of governments, such as law enforcement, correctional officers, and politicians, can unduly cause harm and perpetuate stigma through the regulation and criminalization of sexuality. In order to critique institutions that criminalize and regulate sexuality, the authors of Sex-Positive Criminology examine case studies exploring the criminalization of commercial sex and related harm (at the hands of law enforcement) experienced by those who sell sex. They investigate sex education in schools, reproductive justice in communities and institutions, and restrictions on sexuality in places like prisons, jails, juvenile detention, and immigrant detention facilities. They look into the criminalization of BDSM practices, and address concerns about young people's sexuality connected to age of consent and privacy violations. The authors demonstrate how a sex-positive perspective could help criminologists, policymakers, and educators understand not only how to move away from sex-negative frameworks in theory, policy, and practice, but how sex-positive criminological frameworks can be a useful tool to reduce harm and increase personal agency. Written in a clear and direct style, this book will appeal to students and scholars in criminology, sociology, sexuality studies, cultural studies, criminal justice, social theory, and all those interested in the relationship between sexuality and the crimino-legal system.

              Over the last two decades, green criminology has emerged as a unique area of study, bringing together criminologists possessing a wide range of research interests and varying theoretical orientations, spanning the micro to the macro, from work on individual-level environmental cr...imes to business/corporate violations to state transgressions. There has been little work however attempting to explicitly or implicitly integrate cultural criminology into green criminology. This book moves towards articulating a theory of green cultural criminology. Brisman and South examine existing overlapping research and offer a platform to support future excursions by green criminologists into cultural criminology s concern with culture and offer an invitation to cultural criminologists to adopt a green view of the consumption landscape and the growth of environmental harms.

              Feminist work within criminology has done much to enhance understanding of the link between sex, gender and crime, yet struggles to maintain relevance in a world where concerns about gender inequality are marginalized. In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and ref...lexive review arguing for new feminist directions in furthering knowledge about the links between gender, sex, and crime that take into account global discrepancies and inequalities as well as those that shape patterns of crime and violence within nation states. The book argues that for feminism to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in 21st century requires new bold directions in feminist thinking about gender, crime and global justice. Issues explored in the book include the rising rates of violence and crime recorded for women offenders globally, the queering of crime and the existence of same sex abuse, the uneven geographical distribution of violence around the world and male victimization.

              Contemporary Drug Policy

              This book focuses on the use of drugs in our lives and how we respond to them. Whereas drug policy typically centres on the problems of illicit drugs or licit drugs used in illicit ways or circumstances, Contemporary Drug Policy instead considers the wide variety of substances we... call drugs as a normal part of our personal and social experience and asks how and when drugs benefit us as well as how and when they are harmful. The evidence is clear that at some times, in some circumstances, and in some places drugs are a problem. This book does not ignore these issues but shifts our attention to making policies that also recognize their legitimate and constructive place in society. It focuses on asking questions, challenging assumptions, and developing responses to drugs based on evidence from scientific study as directed by critical criminological theory rather than mainstream theory or unfounded assumptions. Different from other books on drug policy, this book does not offer answers or solutions. Rather it shows how critical criminological theories can lead scientific research in new directions supportive of policies that offer both solutions to problems that are found to be related to drugs and an appreciation for the benefits that drugs can bring to people and society. This book will be of interest to those studying or researching drug policy as well as professionals involved in policy making processes.

              Over the last fifteen years there has been a significant growth in literature dealing with terrorism. Nevertheless, scholars within mainstream criminology have only recently begun to grapple with the problem of terrorism in a sustained fashion. In this provocative book the author...s provide both an exposition of the contradictions that have emerged around the regulation of terrorism and an incisive analysis of the questions that the management of terrorism poses for the discipline. Focusing primarily on the processes and practices that have emerged in the United States and the United Kingdom, the book provides a critical account of the political construction, mediation and regulation of terrorist threat since the events of 9/11. The authors explore the ways in which new institutional modes of risk assessment based on the principle of pre-emption have impacted on individuals targeted by them. Noting the dilemmas produced by the pre-emptive turn, the authors also elucidate more recent moves to develop the idea of resilience in counter-terrorism and security policy. This book will be suitable for academics and students interested in political violence, terrorism, geopolitics and risk, as well as for practitioners and experts working in the security industries.
