Criminological Foundations of Penal Policy by Lucia Zedner

Book Description

The Criminological Foundations of Penal Policy brings together leading international criminologists to examine the link between the fruits of criminological research and the development of criminal justice policy. This volume includes comparative discussions of the United States, Germany, Australia, England, and Wales. It is divided into four parts. Part 1 discusses the theoretical issues surrounding the relationship between public policy and the discipline of criminology. Part 2 consists of three essays exploring historical aspects of that relationship. Part 3 then examines three distinct areas of penal policy: sentencing, policing, and parole, as case studies of the influence of research upon the development of policy. Finally, in Part 4, which is explicitly devoted to international comparisons, there is a consideration of the factors that distinguish research projects that do influence criminal justice policy from those that appear not to. The Criminological Foundations of Penal Policy is a volume in honour of Roger Hood, Professor of Criminology and Director of the Centre for Criminological Research in the University of Oxford.

Preventive Justice by Lucia Zedner Preventive Justice, Paperback (September 2015)

Preventive Justice looks at the use of coercive preventive measures by the state, both within and beyond criminal law. Examining preventive laws, measures, and institutions in and outside the criminal law, it explores the justifications given for using coercion to protect the public from harm.

Prevention and the Limits of the Criminal Law by Lucia Zedner Prevention and the Limits of the Criminal Law, Hardback (January 2013)

Are preventive justice measures justified? Do they needlessly blur the boundaries between criminal and civil law, signalling a change in the architecture of security? The contributors in this volume re-assess the foundations for the range of coercive measures that states now take in the name of prevention and public protection.

Principles and Values in Criminal Law and Criminal Justice by Lucia Zedner Principles and Values in Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, Hardback (August 2012)

Celebrating the scholarship of one of the leading lawyers of the common law, Andrew Ashworth, the essays in this volume address fundamental questions of principle and value in criminal law, criminal process, human rights, sentencing, and punishment. This is a major contribution to contemporary debates about criminalization and punishment.
