Western European Penal Systems by Vincenzo Ruggiero

Book Description

This unique and original textbook offers undergraduates and interested professionals a much-needed description of how the penal system, including both prisons and alternatives to custody, is organized in eight major Western European countries. Each chapter provides readers with a critical anatomy and empirical overview of the full range of penal sanctions used in each country and an analysis of how these sanctions are implemented. Using statistical data which are not widely available, contributors examine the nature of the penal population in relation to sentencing, to its class, gender and racial composition and to the nature of the offences for which individuals have been confined. While highlighting several common trends in penal policy and strategy across Europe and seeking to assess to what extent these commonalities are being generated by the wider process of political integration, Western European Penal Systems also demonstrates that each of the eight countries has to an important extent its own culture of punishment which is constantly being reinterpreted and reworked.

Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe by Vincenzo Ruggiero Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe, Paperback (January 2014)

Combining empirical data and theoretical discussions on the relationship between corruption and organised crime in all 27 EU member states, this book provides an analysis of the specific national contexts in which corruption and organised crime thrive.

Punishment in Europe by Vincenzo Ruggiero Punishment in Europe, Hardback (August 2013)

This collection, from a range of leading international scholars, looks at penal practice in a variety of different European countries. Noting particularities as well as similarities, such as the overuse of imprisonment and the use of harsher sanctions against the poor, this book questions how we justify and deliver punishment in Europe.
