The Realist Debate
PUBLISHER: SAGE Publications, Incorporated
Also available at Amazon.com
It is however, a controversial school of thought which has provoked a lively international debate. Even within the school itself there are important distinctions to be drawn between the new' realists and the left or radical' realists.
Rethinking Criminology: The Realist Debate is the first of two books which bring together, for the first time, both the leading advocates and critics of realism. In this volume the main proponents of left realism issue their most up-to-date statements on the controversial Square of Crime' while the theoretical and methodological problems that have been identified with realist criminology are examined vigorously.
In Issues in Realist Criminology an international team of criminologists continue the debate and examine the realist's contribution to victimology, feminist criminology, theories of corporate crime, fear of crime, crime prevention, crime control, drugs and policing.
Both books will be essential reading for all academics and criminal justice professionals involved in criminological theory and practice.
