Description

The Handbook of the History and Philosophy of Criminology – eBook PDF

Featuring contributions by distinguished scholars from 10 different countries, The Wiley Handbook of the History and Philosophy of Criminology (PDF) provides scholars, students, and criminologists with a truly global perspective on the theory and practice of criminology throughout the centuries and around the world. In addition to chapters devoted to the key ideas, thinkers, and moments in the intellectual and philosophical history of criminology, it features in-depth coverage of the organizational structure of criminology as an academic discipline world-wide.

The 1st section focuses on key ideas that have shaped the field in the past, are shaping it in the present, and are likely to influence its evolution in the foreseeable future. Beginning with early precursors to criminology’s emergence as a unique discipline, the authors trace the evolution of the field, from the pioneering work of 17th-century Italian jurist/philosopher, Cesare Beccaria, up through the latest sociological and biosocial trends.

In the 2nd section, authors address the structure of criminology as an academic discipline in countries around the globe, including in South America, North America, East Asia, Europe, and Australia.

With contributions by leading thinkers whose work has been instrumental in the development of criminology and emerging voices on the cutting edge The Wiley Handbook of the History and Philosophy of Criminology provides valuable insights on the latest research trends in the field worldwide – the ideal reference for criminologists as well as those studying in the field and related social science and humanities disciplines.
