JV Barry by Mark Finnane

Book Description

This is the history of John Vincent Barry: judge, historian, criminologist, civil libertarian and public intellectual before his time. Drawing on an archive of more than 10,000 letters as well as recent interviews with those who knew him, Mark Finnane looks at Barry in the cultural, political and intellectual milieu of inter- and post-war Australia, and describes Barry's considerable role in the creation of a discourse of justice and human rights in Australia. The book approaches under-documented domains of Australian life such as crime and the courts, divorce, the building of institutions, the conduct and consequences of public enquiries, enriching our understanding of the constraints faced by earlier generations and the possibilities opened up by their choices

Indigenous Crime and Settler Law by Mark Finnane Indigenous Crime and Settler Law, Hardback (August 2012)

In a break from the contemporary focus on the law's response to inter-racial crime, the authors examine the law's approach to the victimization of one Indigenous person by another. Drawing on a wealth of archival material relating to homicides in Australia, they conclude that settlers and Indigenous peoples still live in the shadow of empire.

Punishment in Australian Society by Mark Finnane Punishment in Australian Society, Paperback (September 1997)

Drawing on the archives of prisons and other government agencies as well as national and international studies of the subject, this book addresses themes of central importance to criminal justice policy and administration at a time of rising imprisonment and anxiety about crime in Australia.
