Críticas:

"This book displays in abundance the hallmarks of Robert Reiner's work: it synthesizes a vast amount of literature and data into a remarkably accessible and compelling narrative, and it is both sociologically dispassionate and morally serious about its subject matter. The result is an accomplished introduction to the concept of crime." Ian Loader, University of Oxford "'Crime' is a keyword in contemporary politics and culture: widely used, powerfully consequential, and for all its seeming simplicity deeply complex and contested. In this masterly account, Robert Reiner traces the concept's multiple meanings and ramifications, its role in criminological theory and political discourse, and its intimate association with the history of capitalism. This is an essential, eye-opening guide to one of the central issues of our time." David Garland, New York University "Reiner brings together a vast amount of literature, and makes a compelling case." Professional Security Magazine Online " Crime is a succinct and eminently readable work that is none the worse for its occasional streak of combativeness. Notwithstanding the variety of topics covered, Reiner's writing is invariably clear, rich in detail and draws on a variety of theoretical and empirical studies." LSE Review of Books "The more you read, the more you become aware that your view of crime is probably ill-judged and subjective, usually based on ignorance or a low-level desire to punish a hurt you think you've suffered 'Crime' is well worth the effort of reading." Tribune Magazine "Useful right through from first-year to Masters criminology and related disciplines, this book is, for me, the best short overview of the concept of crime on the market." Policing & Society

Reseña del editor:

Crime is a source of endless fascination and fear. Yet behind the apparent consensus that crime must be fought, there is considerable conflict about what should or should not be treated as criminal, and even the most shocking crimes can inspire divisive debate. This concise book explores the seemingly simple, common-sense concept of crime revealing the huge complexities, ambiguities and tensions that lie beneath it. Criminal law is often at odds with different moral perspectives and the practices of different cultures. The mass media distort the picture profoundly, as do politicians in pursuit of law and order votes. The criminal justice system tackles only a limited range of crimes almost entirely ones committed by the poor and relatively powerless while often neglecting the most dangerous and harmful activities of corporations and states, from the carnage of unjust wars to the tragedies engendered by austerity. It is only by examining the multiple and varied perspectives on crime that we can begin to understand and respond appropriately to this social phenomenon. Written by a world-leading criminologist, this insightful book will be an invaluable and captivating introduction for students and interested readers of criminology, law, sociology and politics.
