Research and Markets: Comparative Criminal Justice and Globalization.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Comparative Criminal Justice and Globalization" book to their offering.

In this exciting and topical collection, leading scholars discuss the implications of globalisation for the fields of comparative criminology and criminal justice. How far does it still make sense to distinguish nation states, for example in comparing prison rates? Is globalisation best treated as an inevitable trend or as an interactive process? How can globalisation's effects on space and borders be conceptualised? How does it help to create norms and exceptions?

The editor, David Nelken, is a Distinguished Scholar of the American Sociological Association, a recipient of the Sellin-Glueck award of the American Society of Criminology, and an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, UK. He teaches a course on Comparative Criminal Justice as Visiting Professor in Criminology at Oxford University's Centre of Criminology.


* 'Comparative Criminal Justice and Globalization imaginatively juxtaposes work by leading contemporary scholars of two usually separate subjects. Editor David Nelken's incisive, nuanced opening and closing essays provide analytical and conceptual frameworks that will shape understanding, and future research and writing, for years to come.' Michael Tonry, University of Minnesota, USA

* 'Globalization represents the next horizon for comparative studies of crime and justice, posing new theoretical and practical challenges but also opening up exciting opportunities for methodological innovation, policy interventions and disciplinary renewal. The contributors to this volume, all household names in the field, explore the implications of globalization for criminality, policing, criminal process and penality, and in so doing help us to understand contemporary social realities and glimpse criminology's possible futures.' Paul Roberts, University of Nottingham, UK and University of New South Wales, Australia
