In recent decades, the Australian social scientist John Braithwaite has played a crucial role in the development of international criminology. He is considered one of the most renowned criminologists of our time, and he has put his scientific engagement at the service of humanity and society by aiming at social justice, participatory democracy, sustainable development, and world peace. In this collection of essays well-known academics reflect on Braithwaite's work by addressing two leading questions: What are the implications of a republican theory of justice for criminology and criminal policy? And what is the role of academic criminology in today's social, political, and economic environment? The volume concludes with an extensive contribution from John Braithwaite himself in which he not only to the essays in the book but also addresses challenges to and future directions for academic criminology.

In this major new work, which Zygmunt Bauman calls a '"tour de force" of breathtaking erudition and clarity', Jock Young charts the movement of the social fabric in the last third of the twenthieth century from an inclusive society of stability and homogeneity to an exclusive society of change and division. Jock Young, one of the foremost criminologists of our time, explores exclusion on three levels: economic exclusion from the labour market; social exclusion between people in civil society; and the ever-expanding exclusionary activities of the criminal justice system. Taking account of the massive dramatic structural and cultural changes that have beset our society and relating these to the quantum leap in crime and incivilities, Jock Young develops a major new theory based on a new citizenship and a reflexive modernity.

`This text represents a major contribution to the literature on crime prevention and community safety. It goes beyond existing literature in bringing together sophisticated theoretical analysis on these topics which are core issues for government at local as well as national levels. And it also brings a much needed international perspective to our understanding of the local governance of crime' - Kevin Stenson, Professor of Criminology, Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College Crime Prevention and Community Safety provides an essential introduction to the complex issues and debates in the field of crime control and the new politics of safety and security across the globe. Collectively the contributions to this volume present a critique of current policy and open up the field of study to new directions. While engaging with the dominant focus on `what works' in crime reduction and community safety, the book also moves beyond the traditionally narrow, technical boundaries of much previous debate. Crime Prevention and Community Safety: New Directions looks at: -The relationship between crime control, communities and the nation state; -The diverse and changing sites of conflict, compromise and collusion around crime control policies; -Wider issues relating to `risk', 'safety' and `security'. The central feature of the volume as a whole is a commitment to exploring new directions for research and analysis, theoretically, empirically and comparatively. In opening up the varying and volatile spaces for crime prevention and community safety within the more general politics of social order, the book provides a critical rethinking of traditional connections between criminology, social policy and politics. Crime Prevention and Community Safety will be essential reading for students of criminology, criminal justice, community safety, socio-legal studies, sociology of crime and deviance and social policy. This is a course Reader for The Open University course D863 Community Safety, Crime Prevention and Social Control

Was Kriminalität ist, das ist theoretisch und politisch höchst umstritten. Die entsprechenden Differenzen und Streitigkeiten werden in Kriminalitätsdiskursen thematisiert und ausgetragen, die sich zu einer Sinnprovinz der Kriminalität formieren, d.h. zu spezifischen Formen der Aufmerksamkeit, der Erfahrung, der Erklärung, der Reaktion etc. hinsichtlich sozialer Phänomene. Zugleich aber ist diese Sinnprovinz der Kriminalität nichts Starres, sondern dynamisch und in stetem Wandel begriffen. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes thematisieren solche Dynamiken in unterschiedlichen Bereichen des sozialen Feldes der Kriminalität.

Moderne Gesellschaften beruhen auf dem Selbstverständnis, Gewalt einzuhegen, zugleich sind das Recht und die Pflicht zur Gewaltanwendung Grundprinzipien moderner Staatlichkeit. Gewalt, Ordnung und Staatlichkeit sind demnach konstitutiv aufeinander bezogen, doch ihr prekäres Verhältnis erscheint zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts umstrittener denn je. Konzepte wie Rettungsfolter, gerechte Kriege, Ausnahme oder Sicherheit verweisen zugleich auf neue Rationalitäten staatlicher Gewalt. Der Band bietet interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf historische Kontinuitäten und Brüche staatlicher Neuordnungen von Gewalt in der Gegenwart. Mit Beiträgen von David Garland, Christian Geulen, Sven Kramer, Susanne Krasmann, Alf Lüdtke, Jürgen Martschukat, Andrew W. Neal, Günter Riederer, Ruth Stanley und Anja Feth, Frank Schumacher, Klaus Weinhauer sowie einen bisher im Deutschen unveröffentlichten Text von Judith Butler.

Offizielles Ziel staatlichen Strafens war bisher neben der Generalprävention vor allem die Wiedereingliederung von Straftätern in die Gesellschaft. Das wohlfahrtsstaatliche Behandeln und Resozialisieren ist jedoch in den letzten Jahrzehnten - insbesondere in den USA, aber in Anfängen auch bei uns - immer mehr verdrängt worden von zwei neuen Formen der Kriminalitätsbekämpfung: vorbeugende Kontrollen einerseits, von Alarmanlagen über Datensammlungen bis zu Bürgerwehren, harte und ausgrenzende Strafen andererseits. David Garland liefert eine brillante Analyse dieser neuen Formen der sozialen Kontrolle und der Kriminalpolitik sowie ihrer sozialen Hintergründe. Abschottung und verstärkte Überwachung einerseits, die Ausgrenzung großer Gruppen andererseits sind Anzeichen einer Entwicklung zum Law-and-Order-Staat mit der Tendenz zum Autoritarismus. Im Fokus steht nicht nur der Umgang mit Kriminalität, sondern die Frage, in welcher Gesellschaft wir leben wollen. David Garland ist bekannt als Gesellschaftsanalytiker und Strafrechtskritiker. Er ist Professor für Soziologie und Recht an der New York University.
