This book is essential reading for students and scholars of criminology, penology, criminal justice and socio-legal studies.

Capital Punishment by Professor David Nelken Capital Punishment, Hardback (December 2013)

It provides a long overdue review of the disparate groups and strategies that lay claim to abolitionism.

Governing Through Crime in South Africa by Professor David Nelken Governing Through Crime in South Africa, Hardback (September 2013)

This book deals with the historic transition to democracy in South Africa and its impact upon crime and punishment. It examines how the problem of crime has emerged as a major issue to be governed in post-apartheid South Africa. This work uses the South African case study to examine a question of wider interest.
