  1. Feminism and Global Justice

    By Kerry Carrington

    In this book, Kerry Carrington takes a bold, critical and reflexive approach to understanding the global divisions and inequalities that shape distinctive patterns of gender and crime. The book argues that in order for feminist criminology to enhance its conceptual and political relevance in the twenty-first century, bold new directions in scholarship on gender, crime and global justice are required that also take into account global divisions and inequalities...

  1. NEW - Human Smuggling and Border Crossings by Gabriella Sanchez

    Human Smuggling and Border Crossings is a landmark book on an epochal issue for Arizona, the United States, and the 21st Century world. At the same time deeply personal and coolly objective, the book provides a unique insight into the lived experiences of smuggling, for migrants, smugglers, and the authorities, and in so doing explodes many of the myths that have distorted our understanding and policy responses to human smuggling.’ - Khalid Koser MBE, Associate Fellow, Geneva Centre for Security Policy

  2. NEW! - The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration

    A stunning, interdisciplinary, international collection of original work, this Handbook challenges the bright line that has been drawn between regular and irregular migration, criminals and victims, and security and mobility. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how and why the immigration threat has been produced as a political project, the book refocuses our attention on the devastating social and human costs associated with making people illegal. An absolutely foundational contribution to the development of a "criminology of mobility."’ - Nancy A. Wonders, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Northern Arizona University, USA.

  1. The Politics of Abolition Revisited - Author Article

    Read an article by Thomas Mathiesen about his new book, The Politics of Abolition Revisited.

    "I wish to spend the limited space I have at my disposal on the history of The Politics of Abolition, a book which first appeared in 1974, forty years ago, and on the second edition of the same book, The Politics of Abolition Revisited, which came out in the early fall of this year. First of all, what motivated the first edition of the book? Firstly, there was a pent-up dissatisfaction, and a wish to do something with ‘the prison situation’, among a number of intellectuals and socially oriented practitioners in Norway. The feeling was that prisons were inhumane and did not work according to plan..."
