Main Content Area

Perspectives on Crime and Justice

Open, inclusive, and broad in focus, the series publishes scholarship on a wide range of crime and justice issues, including the exploration of understudied subjects relating to crime, its causes, and attendant social responses. Of particular interest are works that examine emerging topics or that shed new light on more richly studied subjects. Volumes in the series might explore emerging forms of deviance and crime, critical perspectives on crime and justice, international and transnational considerations of and responses to legal violations, innovative ways to reduce criminal behavior, and alternate forms of response by communities and justice systems to disorder, delinquency, and criminality. Both single-authored studies and collections of original edited content are welcome.
