Crime, Abuse and the Elderly by Mike Brogden
Book DescriptionThis book examines and analyses the experiences of older people as both victims and perpetrators of crime. Drawing upon a wealth of research from British and North American sources, the authors detail the historical experience of the elderly as victims, the extent of present-day criminal victimisation in the home and institutions, the social theories which attempt to explain that experience, and the types of resolution available. The book also addresses the experiences of elderly people in the criminal justice process - the offences to which they are prone, and the implications for penal policy of an increase in the elderly penal population. Crime, Abuse and the Elderly breaks new ground in its focus on the experiences of elderly people as criminal victims in private space, its insistence on a proper engagement of criminology with crimes involving older people, and in its argument that much so-called abuse can be explained criminologically and should be dealt with by the criminal justice system rather than by treatment and welfare agencies. It will be essential reading for students, academics and professionals concerned with the experiences of the elderly.

Books By Author Mike Brogden
Policing in an Age of Austerity, Hardback (July 2011)
While the question of role and function has been the bedrock of classical sociological theorizing on police, this text grounds such theorising in explicating how British policing has arisen through a schismatic process, why it is in a present mess, and what it should be doing in the future.
Community Policing, Hardback (April 2005)
Community policing is widely regarded as central to the future of policing, yet many consider that it works best where it is least needed and worst where it is most needed. This title seeks to test these truisms and explore the the concept of community policing across a range of contexts.
Geronticide, Paperback (February 2001)
Drawing on a variety of historical, contemporary, anthropological and literary sources, this book considers the present day debates about the sanctity of elderly lives and the question of euthanasia. The book shows that killing the elderly, voluntarily or involuntarily, has been a feature of many societies, from the primitive to the present day.
