Geometries of Crime: How Young People Perceive Crime and Justice

Image not available lge

ISBN13: 9781137546197
Published: July 2016
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £60.00



Usually despatched in 1 to 3 weeks.

This book explores how young people perceive the severity of crime and delinquency. It particularly addresses whom or what they consider to be the victims of crime and delinquency, how they analyze and assess appropriate responses by the criminal justice system, as well as their place within it.

The book proposes tools for developing a more elaborate and robust understanding of what constitutes crime, identifying those affected by it, and what is deemed adequate or appropriate punishment.

In so doing, it offers thick description of young peoples' conceptions of and experiences with crime, delinquency, justice and law, and uses this description to interrogate the role of the state in influencing - indeed, shaping - these perceptions.
