  1. The Routledge Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime in Europe

    Edited by Judith van Erp, Wim Huisman, Gudrun Vande Walle 

    The study of white-collar crime remains a central concern for criminologists around the world and research concentrates on its nature, prevalence, causes and responses. However, most books on white-collar crime tend to focus on Anglo-American examples, which is surprising given the amount of rich data and research taking place in mainland Europe... Read more...

  2. Violence against Women

    Criminological perspectives on men’s violences
    By Nicole Westmarland 

    Violence against women is an enduring problem around the globe, yet very few books look at the full range of men’s violences against women – perpetrated in relationships, in the family, in public spaces, and in institutions. While books that look at different types of violence, such as domestic violence, ‘honor’ based violence and rape in isolation are useful for depth, it is only by looking across... Read more...

  1. New - The Routledge Handbook of White-Collar and Corporate Crime in Europe

    Edited by Judith Van Erp, Wim Huisman and Gudrun Vande Walle

    ‘This superb handbook brings together leading European scholars of white-collar and corporate crime. In light of the increasing globalization of manufacturing, markets, finance, and governance, its expansive coverage of landmark cases throughout Europe and European responses to them could not have appeared at a more opportune time. The editors and contributors are to be commended for enlarging our vision of white-collar and corporate crime as a problem of worldwide significance.’ - Michael L. Benson, Professor, School of Criminal Justice, University of Cincinnati, USA

  2. Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - Voices from American Prisons

    'Heretofore, 'voices' from US prisons were usually angry men (white and black) who had axes to grind with whomever they blamed for their imprisonment. It is, therefore, refreshing to see in this small volume by sociologist Stern (Harvard) not angry voices, but rather uplifting, spiritual, and deeply thoughtful words examining the humanity of men and women locked up inside of the many prisons across the US... The author's epilogue explains that education programs alone will not end the inhumanity of punishment, nor will it end mass incarceration. Stern is an advocate of the Project Half initiative, which she believes can offer cost-effective policies that will eventually end both incarceration and recidivism... Especially for graduate students in sociology, criminology and social work, and criminal justice professionals working to rehabilitate prisoners. Summing Up: Recommended' - Earl Smith, Professor Emeritus of Sociology,Wake Forest University, Choice Reviews, January 2015
