This book considers whether coercive control (particularly non-physical forms of family violence) should be prohibited by the criminal law. Based on the premise that traditional understandings of family violence are severely limited, it considers whether the core of family violence is power-based controlling or coercive behavior: attempts by men to psychologically dominate their partners. Such behavior can cause significant psychological, physical and economic harms to victims and is increasingly recognized as a form of human rights abuse. The book considers the new offences that have been introduced in England and Wales (controlling or coercive behavior), Ireland (controlling behavior) and Scotland (domestic abuse). It invites consideration of three key questions: Do conventional criminal laws adequately regulate non-physical abuse? Is the criminal law an appropriate mechanism for responding to the coercive control of family members? And if a new and distinctive offence is warranted, what is the optimal form of that offence? This ground-breaking work is essential reading for researchers and practitioners interested in coercive control and the proper role of the criminal law as a mechanism for regulating family violence.

A vast amount of research has been conducted on the subject of single homelessness over the past decade. However, this material is often inaccessible to a wider audience - appearing in scholarly journals, or as local studies that are not generally available or advertised. This guide is based on an in-depth review of single homelessness research in Britain throughout the 1990s and provides 200 high quality research summaries. Each summary comments on the robustness and usefulness of each study and highlights aims, methods, key findings and recommendations. The summaries are indexed by keywords covering all major areas of single homelessness research. A review of single homelessness can be used independently or read alongside the two complementary reports - A bibliography of single homelessness research and the overview report, Single homelessness. These three reports are all vital reading for researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the field of single homelessness and anyone interested in issues related to homelessness generally.

The criminal attacks that occurred in the U.S. on September 11, 2001, have profoundly altered and reshaped the priorities of criminal justice systems around the world. Domestic criminal law has become a vehicle for criminalizing 'new' terrorist offenses and other transnational forms of criminality. 'Preventative' detention regimes have come to the fore, balancing the scales in favor of security rather than individual liberty. These moves complement already existing shifts in criminal justice policies and ideologies brought about by adjusting to globalization, economic neo-liberalism, and the shift away from the post-war liberal welfare settlement. In Regulating Deviance, a collection of essays focuses on the future directions for the criminal law in the light of current concerns with state security and regulating 'deviant' behavior. The contributions come from leading scholars in the fields of criminal law and procedure, criminology, legal history, law and psychology, and the sociology of law.
