Rethinking Criminology: The Realist Debate

Overview

Overview

Realism is at the centre of contemporary thought in criminology. It is the only new theory to have emerged in recent years that has successfully entered a debate with the New Right establishment criminology and left idealism.

It is however, a controversial school of thought which has provoked a lively international debate. Even within the school itself there are important distinctions to be drawn between the 'new' realists and the 'left or radical' realists.

Rethinking Criminology: The Realist Debate is the first of two books which bring together, for the first time, both the leading advocates and critics of realism. In this volume the main proponents of left realism issue their most up-to-date statements on the controversial 'Square of Crime' while the theoretical and methodological problems that have been identified with realist criminology are examined vigorously.

In Issues in Realist Criminology an international team of criminologists continue the debate and examine the realist's contribution to victimology, feminist criminology, theories of corporate crime, fear of crime, crime prevention, crime control, drugs and policing.

Both books will be essential reading for all academics and criminal justice professionals involved in criminological theory and practice.
