Rezension:

There is no question that the book is very well researched and the authors have done an excellent job of bringing new insights and new perspectives to the topic.”

(Robert M. Worley)

“Any analysis of global justice which moves from circumspection about traditions of comparative criminal justice and transnational criminology is to be much welcomed.  Similarly to indicting the present era of globalisation as it destroys the prevailing global economic model, a cross-cultural analysis of crime and justice themes reveals that global justice as a hegemonic exercise.  It need not be so. In fact the massive strains in global governance today highlight the urgent need to engage with a holistic understanding of global justice.  Banks and Baker convincingly wrestle with the need to study global justice, providing a cogent overview of globalisation and its influences on criminal justice, criminology and emerging international criminalisation. The books scope and coverage is as vast as is its aspiration to provide synergies across contemporary and often competing conceptualisations of global justice, is commendable. For students approaching this confusing field of scholarship and policy development the book is an important new guide.” (Mark Findlay)

“With this volume, Cyndi Banks and James Baker add a well-organized and intelligently written text to the field of criminology and criminal justice education... Students have much to gain from this volume. Even those interested primarily in crime and criminal justice in the United States (or in any other country) will understand that the knowledge they acquire is inadequate if it neglects the global contexts in which crime and criminal justice are embedded."

(Joachim J. Savelsberg)

Vom Verlag:

Presenting and critically assessing a wide range of topics relevant to criminology, criminal justice and global justice, this text is divided into three parts: comparative criminal justice, international criminology, and transnational and global criminology.  Within each field are located specific topics which the authors regard as contemporary and highly relevant and that will assist students in gaining a fuller appreciation of global justice issues.  The authors address these complex global issues using a scholarly but accessible approach, often using detailed case studies. The discussion of each topic is a comprehensive contextualized account that explains the social context in which law and crime exist and engages with questions of explanation or interpretation.

The authors challenge students to gain knowledge of international and comparative criminal justice issues and think about them in a critical manner. It has become difficult to ignore the global and international dimensions of criminal justice and criminology and this text aims to enhance criminal justice education by focusing on some of the issues engaging criminology worldwide, and to prepare students for a future where fields of study like transnational crime are unexceptional.
