As inequalities in society have increased, so the actual and perceived risks of crime and other social ills have grown rapidly for all sections of society. Crime has become a central issue to governments.;This book is concerned with issues arising from these developments. Top criminologists from Britain, the USA and Australia explore the links between crime and risk through a range of themes, from the depiction of crime in the media to the dilemmas of policing, to the new punitivences of criminal justice systems and the custodial warehousing of the poor and excluded.;""Crime, Risk and Justice"" should be of interest to students, academics and practitioners with an interest in crime, crime control and the place they have in modern society. The book also explores the links between neo-liberal policies, increased inequalities and crime and risk, and draws together key contributions from leading academics and practitioners.
