Abstract

Drawing on issues of representation, meaning and politics, this book systematically walks students through the key areas that make up this fascinating approach to the study of crime. The second edition has been fully revised to take account of recent developments in this fast developing field, thereby keeping students up-to-date with the issues facing cultural criminologists today. It includes: * A new chapter entitled 'Trajectories of Cultural Criminology', surveying emergent trends in the field, including; green criminology; cultural criminology of the state; cultural criminology of current global activism, political protest and social movements; and crime and consumerism * A new section at the end of each chapter providing links to useful cultural criminological websites and relevant journal articles * Further Reading lists at the end of each chapter, enabling students to take their studies beyond the classroom * New and updated vignettes, visual illustrations and examples throughout Building on the success of the first edition, Cultural Criminology: An Invitation offers a vibrant and cutting-edge introduction to this growing field. It will encourage students to adopt a critical and contemporary approach to their studies in criminology.
