'Values in Criminology and Community Justice' Book Launch


11th December 2013

Hallam View, Sheffield Hallam University City Campus, Sheffield S1 1WB 

Values in Criminology and Community Justice

Hosted by the Department of Law, Criminology and Community Justice, Sheffield Hallam University

You're invited to celebrate the launch of this exciting and timely collection that considers values in crime theory, criminal justice and research practice.

About the book:

This collection uncovers the many different 'sides' – to echo Howard Becker's famous phrase – that criminologists, policy makers and researchers take.

It evaluates Marxist, postmodernist and feminist perspectives on criminology • the dynamics of race, gender and age • research methods and ethics • the working of the criminal justice system • new challenges for criminology, such as the green movement and Islamophobia.

'Well-known scholars are joined by newer voices in this wide-ranging and inter-disciplinary collection to show that criminal justice is irreducibly concerned with values and moral judgements.'Professor Robert Canton, De Montfort University, Leicester

'This is a timely, imaginative and thoughtful book which sets a new agenda for criminology.' Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe, University of Cambridge, president of the British Society of Criminology
