Synopsis:

The second edition of Controlling Crime provides an important evaluation of criminal justice in the United Kingdom during a period of rapid social change. Each chapter encourages historical, comparative and critical reflection on the organizational logics, powers, procedures and practices of the criminal justice system. The key issues of 'race', gender, class, and the formulation and delivery of criminal justice are addressed throughout.

Collectively, the chapters contribute to a broad-ranging analysis of past and current issues in the field of crime control and criminal justice and point forward to emergent trends and possible alternatives. Illustrating the complexities of the challenges facing the criminal justice system, Controlling Crime facilitates a consideration of the unfolding debates on the future of crime control and criminal justice in the UK.

The areas covered include:

- the origins of the police and key issues in modern police work

- justice and injustice in criminal justice

- criminal courts and sentencing practices

- the emergence of the prison and contemporary penal policy

- youth justice

- probation and punishment in the community

- restorative justice

- crime prevention and community safety

Intended as essential reading for students of criminology, criminal justice, community safety, socio-legal studies, sociology of crime and deviance and social policy, Controlling Crime will also be of interest to anyone wishing to gain an understanding of the operation of contemporary criminal justice systems.

Controlling Crime is a course text for the Open University course D315 Crime, Order and Social Control.
