Globalization and Crime

Third Edition

December 2019 | 296 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Now in its third edition, Globalization & Crime provides students with a comprehensive overview of the essential themes and conceptual debates surrounding globalization and global criminology.

It examines established topics such as human trafficking and smuggling, migration and organised crime. But also explores modern issues such as the refugee crisis in Europe, cyber-hacking and enforcement, and the failure of Internet Service Providers to take responsibility for online content.

This Third Edition has been significantly updated, and includes:

  • Two new chapters: ‘Global Ecological Destruction’ – An investigation into the development of environmental criminology, and ‘Towards a Cosmopolitan Criminology?’ – An overview of the possibilities for establishing a global criminology and coverage of the emerging issues to consider for the future.
  • Updated content and modern case studies, such as the political context surrounding the development of ISIS, organ trafficking, and an anti-globalization backlash in the UK and US.

Ideal reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of criminology, globalization and sociology.
