This new book speaks to the need for a truly comparative and interdisciplinary companion to the state of the art of European criminology. In contrast to more Anglo-American focused offerings, the editors have assembled a cast of leading voices to reflect on differences, elaborate on theoretically grounded comparisons and reflect on emerging themes in criminology in Europe. The main aim of the book is to emphasize what European criminology is and what the institutional variations in legal definitions and responses reveal. The editors have selected key contributors to reflect on a range of topics: An historical, theoretical and policy oriented overview of European issues in crime and crime control, Descriptions and explanations for varieties of crime in Europe, including issues such as state crime, crime measurement, gender and crime and urban safety Possible explanations for the variety of institutional responses, exploring issues such as policing, juvenile justice, punishment, green crime and the role of the victim Concluding chapters reflecting on pan-European trends and how Europe compares with the rest of the world. This book will be vital reading for students, researchers and scholars of criminology across Europe as well as those interested in a comparative approach to the study of crime in Europe.
