Describing the collective responses of bereaved people to the aftermath of violent death, this book concentrates particularly on the birth, development and organization of the self-help and campaigning groups that emerged in the last decade.
In recent years far more attention has been paid to victims of crime both in terms of awareness of the effect of crime upon their lives, and in changes that have been made to the criminal justice system to improve their rights and treatment. This process seems set to continue, with legislative plans announced to rebalance the criminal justice system in favour of the victim. This latest book in the Cambridge Criminal Justice Series brings together leading authorities in the field to review the role of the victim in the criminal justice system in the context of these developments.
Violence is a collection, in a conveniently accessible form, of the most influential articles by leading authorities in the study of violence. It is organised in a unique way that enables readers to conceptualise violence and its explanations in a manner that itself interrogates the theme of the book, what is violence and how might it be understood. It provides an international reference work, combined with an authoritative introduction by the editor.
Peter B. Ainsworth examines the relationship of psychology to crime, criminals and the different stages and aspects of the criminal justice system in this student text that will also be relevant to general readers trained in law.
This is a text for criminology students designed to take them to the heart of the contradictions, confusions and blurred boundaries around the subject of crime about what crime is, about social regulation and control, and about social responsibility. It focuses on the key questions and issues underpinning them in contemporary definitions, representations and explanations of crime. It aims to question the platitudes and clichés surrounding public discussion of crime, by acknowledging the individual, social and political frameworks within which we explore crime and criminality. At the same time this book seeks to explore the nature of criminology as a discipline in order to better understand the key issues explored in the book. It assumes that for students to understand crime and criminology they need to understand the wider societal and sociological implications of all crime related phenomena, and not just explore individual, psychological meanings. The key issues selected for examination are this seen as essential to this wider framework which those concerned with crime require in order to interpret information about crime, as well as to make more intelligent sense of individual crimes and criminals.
