9780521356688: Crime, Shame and Reintegration

This book, a contribution to general criminological theory, suggests that the key to why some societies have higher crime rates than others lies in the way different cultures go about the social process of shaming wrongdoers. Shaming can be counterproductive, making crime problems worse. But when shaming is done within a cultural context of respect for the offender, it can be extraordinarily powerful, efficient, and just form of social control.

Book Description:

A contribution to general criminological theory is supplied by this study's claim that the key to why some societies have higher crime rates than others lies in the way different cultures "shame" wrongdoing.

From the Back Cover:

Crime, shame and reintegration is a contribution to general criminological theory. Its approach is as relevant to professional burglary as to episodic delinquency or white collar crime. Braitwaite argues that some societies have higher crime rates than others because of their different processes of shaming wrongdoing. Shaming can be counterproductive, making crime problems worse. But when shaming is done within a cultural context of respect for the offender, it can be an extraordinarily powerful, efficient and just form of social control

Buchbeschreibung Cambridge University Press Mrz 1989, 1989. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Crime, shame and reintegration is a contribution to general criminological theory. Its approach is as relevant to professional burglary as to episodic delinquency or white collar crime. Braithwaite argues that some societies have higher crime rates than others because of their different processes of shaming wrongdoing. Shaming can be counterproductive, making crime problems worse. But when shaming is done within a cultural context of respect for the offender, it can be an extraordinarily powerful, efficient and just form of social control. Braithwaite identifies the social conditions for such successful shaming. If his theory is right, radically different criminal justice policies are needed - a shift away from punitive social control toward greater emphasis on moralizing social control. This book will be of interest not only to crimonologists and sociologists, but to those in law, public administration and politics who are concerned with social policy and social issues. 236 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780521356688
