The Routledge Handbook of International Crime and Justice Studies presents the enduring debates and emerging challenges in crime and justice studies from an international and multi-disciplinary perspective. Guided by the pivotal, although vastly under-examined, role that consumerism, politics, technology, and culture assume in shaping these debates and in organizing these challenges, individual chapters probe the global landscape of crime and justice with astonishing clarity and remarkable depth.
A distinguished collection of experts examine the interdisciplinary field of international crime and justice. Their contributions are divided into thematic sections, including:
theory, culture, and society
industries of crime and justice: systems of policing, law, corrections and punishment
the criminal enterprise
global technologies
media, crime, and culture
green criminology
political violence
public health criminology
the political economy of crime and justice.
All the chapters include full pedagogy and instructional resources for easy referencing or classroom use. This Handbook will be useful for students, scholars and practitioners of law, medicine, history, economics, sociology, politics, philosophy, education, public health, and social policy.

Family Policy and Disability by Arie Rimmerman

English | 2015 | ISBN: 1107049172 | 226 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book explores the status and scope of family policies related to households of children with disabilities, providing an in-depth, evidence-based review of legal, programmatic issues. It includes a discussion of the gaps between family needs and contemporary family policies in the United States and European countries, as demonstrated in these households’ surveys. In addition, the volume offers a comparative analysis of cash benefits, tax credits and deductions, and in-kind provisions between the United States and select European countries (UK, France, and Sweden). Most importantly, this book identifies and continues the discussion regarding the critical role of family-centered policies, as expressed in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), as well as the future of family policy toward families of children with disabilities at a time of economic crisis.

The Futures of Legal Education and the Legal Profession by Hilary Sommerlad and Sonia Harris-Short

English | 2015 | ISBN: 1849466556 | 238 pages | PDF | 1,6 MB

The UK is currently witnessing an unprecedented transformation in the legal profession and in legal education. The Legal Services Act 2007 and the Legal Aid, Sentencing, Prisoners and Offenders Act 2013 have both enabled and necessitated dramatic structural changes to the profession, and have impacted its ethos and ethicality. The recent Legal Education and Training Review (LETR) promises similarly dramatic change to the provision of legal education in the UK, reflecting the shifting landscape of both the legal professional market and higher education in general. These transformative changes bring both exciting opportunities and challenges with which everyone involved in the law must grapple – from university lecturers, to senior partners in leading law firms, to the judiciary. This collection comprises a selection of papers presented at the second conference of CEPLER, Birmingham Law School’s Center for Professional Legal Education and Research. The book brings together leading academic scholars, senior figures from professional practice, policy-makers, and representatives of the regulatory authorities, to reflect on the key issues arising from this transformative moment. As such, the essays covers diverse ground – from curriculum development to professional theory – that are enriched and enhanced by the range of backgrounds and perspectives of the contributors. The book is essential for those working within legal education and the legal profession. [Subject: Legal Education, Legal Profession]

Mental Health in the War on Terror: Culture, Science, and Statecraft by Neil K. Aggarwal

English | 2015 | ISBN: 0231166648 | 232 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Neil Krishan Aggarwal’s timely study finds that mental-health and biomedical professionals have created new forms of knowledge and practice in their desire to understand and fight terrorism. In the process, the state has used psychiatrists and psychologists to furnish knowledge on undesirable populations, and psychiatrists and psychologists have protected state interests.
Professional interpretation, like all interpretations, is subject to cultural forces. Drawing on cultural psychiatry and medical anthropology, Aggarwal analyzes the transformation of definitions for normal and abnormal behavior in a vast array of sources: government documents, professional bioethical debates, legal motions and opinions, psychiatric and psychological scholarship, media publications, and policy briefs. Critical themes emerge on the use of mental health in awarding or denying disability to returning veterans, characterizing the confinement of Guantánamo detainees, contextualizing the actions of suicide bombers, portraying Muslim and Arab populations in psychiatric and psychological scholarship, illustrating bioethical issues in the treatment of detainees, and supplying the knowledge and practice to deradicalize terrorists. Throughout, Aggarwal explores this fascinating, troublesome transformation of mental-health science into a potential instrument of counterterrorism.
