Summary

Criminology as a fledging academic discipline is becoming more and more popular and appreciated in China and a large body of literature in English has emerged in recent years about various aspects of crime and its control in China. The Handbook of Chinese Criminology aims to be a key reference point for international scholars with an interest in the development and nature of contemporary criminological research on and in the People'¬"s Republic of China and the Greater China region, and indeed for those with a broad interest in international criminology more generally. This book will offer: An account of the development of criminology as an academic discipline in modern China, as well as some of the unique theories, strategies, or philosophies of crime control that have emerged, An analysis of the criminal justice system in China, including each component subsystem such as the police, the courts, corrections, juvenile justice and the death penalty, An exploration of the issues and problems in conducting research in China, Reflections on the nature of crime and criminality in China, including drugs, prostitution, corruption, death penalty, floating population, and domestic violence. A comparative account of crime and criminal justice in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. The book presents a coherent and systematic guide to the current state-of-the-art research and theory in criminology in China and Greater China and will be of interest to those engaged with crime and criminal justice and Asian Studies.
