Show Summary Details

Preview

This book features contributions from criminologists from the UK, the US, and Australia, brought together to honour the work of Paul Rock, former Professor of Social Institutions at the London School of Economics. It offers an exploration of the theories which underpin much of current criminological thinking. The resulting thirteen chapters all examine and build upon the central themes associated with Paul Rock's work: social and criminological theory, policy development and policy-making, and victims and victimology. Together, the chapters draw on some of his landmark publications for inspiration and discuss the key findings presented over his fifty-year career. These include his contribution to the theoretical development of symbolic interactionism and approaches to sociological theory and practice, as well as an analysis of the concept of criminal justice as a social institution and the resurgence of treatment programmes for women offenders. Also of note is a critical study of the Macpherson enquiry into the death of Stephen Lawrence, an ethnographic exploration of the repercussions of incarceration on prisoners' families and inmates, and two chapters drawing on Paul Rock's work with victims and secondary victims of homicide.
