Globalization & Crime brings together the closely related subjects of criminology and global sociology. Ideal for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students, it examines established topics such as transnational policing and organised crime. It also delves into new territory and explores the issues surrounding international criminal justice, human rights, comparative criminology, green criminology and financial crime. New to this edition is a chapter dedicated to the impact of the war on terror on the rule of law and a detailed discussion on the growing topic of cosmopolitan criminology.

Complete with extensive references, helpful suggestions for further reading and a detailed glossary, this textbook is ideal for students of criminology, globalization and sociology.

Globalization and Crime is a tour de force of how, where and why criminology needs to be applied and extended to our rapidly changing world. This sophisticated and detailed book proclaims the shift of globalization from the periphery to the centre of criminological study and in so doing rapidly improves its theoretical and methodological endeavour. For all students of criminology this is an exciting must read as the future paths of the discipline are mapped out.Professor Sharon Pickering
