Descripción

Language: English . Brand New Book. The Routledge Handbook of Irish Criminology is the first edited collection of its kind to bring together the work of leading Irish criminologists in a single volume. While Irish criminology can be characterised as a nascent but dynamic discipline, it has much to offer the Irish and international reader due to the unique historical, cultural, political, social and economic arrangements that exist on the island of Ireland. The Handbook consists of 30 chapters, which offer original, comprehensive and critical reviews of theory, research, policy and practice in a wide range of subject areas. The chapters are divided into four thematic sections: * Understanding crime examines specific offence types, including homicide, gangland crime and white-collar crime, and the theoretical perspectives used to explain them. * Responding to crime explores criminal justice responses to crime, including crime prevention, restorative justice, approaches to policing and trial as well as post-conviction issues such as imprisonment, community sanctions and rehabilitation. * Contexts of crime investigates the social, political and cultural contexts of the policymaking process, including media representations, politics, the role of the victim and the impact of gender. * Emerging ideas focuses on innovative ideas that prompt a reconsideration of received wisdom on particular topics, including sexual violence and ethnicity. Charting the key contours of the criminological enterprise on the island of Ireland and placing the Irish material in the context of the wider European and international literature, this book is essential reading for those involved in the study of Irish criminology and international and comparative criminal justice.

Sinopsis:

The Routledge Handbook of Irish Criminology is the first edited collection of its kind to bring together the work of leading Irish criminologists in a single volume. While Irish criminology can be characterised as a nascent but dynamic discipline, it has much to offer the Irish and international reader due to the unique historical, cultural, political, social and economic arrangements that exist on the island of Ireland.

The Handbook consists of 30 chapters, which offer original, comprehensive and critical reviews of theory, research, policy and practice in a wide range of subject areas. The chapters are divided into four thematic sections:

  1. Understanding crime examines specific offence types, including homicide, gangland crime and white-collar crime, and the theoretical perspectives used to explain them.
  2. Responding to crime explores criminal justice responses to crime, including crime prevention, restorative justice, approaches to policing and trial as well as post-conviction issues such as imprisonment, community sanctions and rehabilitation.
  3. Contexts of crime investigates the social, political and cultural contexts of the policymaking process, including media representations, politics, the role of the victim and the impact of gender.
  4. Emerging ideas focuses on innovative ideas that prompt a reconsideration of received wisdom on particular topics, including sexual violence and ethnicity.

Charting the key contours of the criminological enterprise on the island of Ireland and placing the Irish material in the context of the wider European and international literature, this book is essential reading for those involved in the study of Irish criminology and international and comparative criminal justice.

Deirdre Healy is a Lecturer at the UCD Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin. Her teaching and research interests include desistance, reintegration, community sanctions, criminological theory and victimisation. She has a track record of high-quality publications in peer-reviewed international and Irish journals and her work has attracted interest from policymakers and practitioners as well as academics. She has published two books: The Dynamics of Desistance: Charting Pathways through Change (Routledge, 2012) and Rape and Justice in Ireland (with Conor Hanly and Stacey Scriver; Liffey Press, 2009).

Claire Hamilton practised as a barrister in criminal law until 2004 when she became a full-time academic. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in Law at Maynooth University, having previously worked as a lecturer in criminology in Dublin Institute of Technology and Queen’s University Belfast. Her research interests lie in the area of penology, particularly comparative penology. She has published three books, the most recent being Reconceptualising Penality: A comparative perspective on punitiveness in Ireland, Scotland and New Zealand (Ashgate, 2014). She has written widely on various criminological topics in national and international journals.

Yvonne Daly is a Senior Lecturer in Criminal Law and the Law of Evidence in the School of Law and Government at Dublin City University and a member of DCU’s Socio-Legal Research Centre.

She has published widely and is co-author of Irish Criminal Justice: Theory, process and procedure (Clarus Press, 2010). She is a Board Member of the Association for Criminal Justice Research and Development (ACJRD) and Vice-Chair of the Royal Irish Academy's Ethical, Political, Legal and Philosophical Studies Committee.
