Crime, Deviance and Society: An Introduction to Sociological Criminology offers a comprehensive introduction to criminological theory. The book introduces readers to key sociological theories, such as anomie and strain, and examines how traditional approaches have influenced the ways in which crime and deviance are constructed. It provides a nuanced account of contemporary theories and debates, and includes chapters covering feminist criminology, critical masculinities, cultural criminology, green criminology, and postcolonial theory, among others. Case studies in each chapter demonstrate how sociological theories can manifest within and influence the criminal justice system and social policy. Each chapter also features margin definitions and timelines of contributions to key theories, reflection questions and end-of-chapter questions that prompt students reflection. Written by an expert team of academics from Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Crime, Deviance and Society is a highly engaging and accessible introduction to the field for students of criminology and criminal justice.
Political and economic developments, as well as transformative advances in technology, have propelled the reach and scope of surveillance practices to unprecedented levels. There are many factors that have contributed towards the recent intensification of the surveillance society, some of which can be found at national level, while others are international, even global. A prevalent viewpoint emerged that rippled around the world - reinforced by politicians and the media - that it was necessary to surrender privacy and liberties in return for safety and protection. A key argument put forth in this chapter is that although surveillance has a tendency to appear very normal, routine and benign (and in many ways it is), it possesses an immense capacity to disrupt established social norms, to influence the mobility, even life chances, of individuals and groups, and dramatically impact on civil liberties and human rights as we currently understand them.
