Victims in the war on crime : the use and abuse of victims' rights by Markus Dirk Dubber( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Two phenomena have shaped American criminal law for the past thirty years: the war on crime and the victims' rights movement. As incapacitation has replaced rehabilitation as the dominant ideology of punishment, reflecting a shift from an identification with defendants to an identification with victims, the war on crime has victimized offenders and victims alike. What we need instead, Dubber argues, is a system which adequately recognizes both victims and defendants as persons. Victims in the War on Crime is the first book to provide a critical analysis of the role of victims in the criminal justice system as a whole. It also breaks new ground in focusing not only on the victims of crime, but also on those of the war on victimless crime. After first offering an original critique of the American penal system in the age of the crime war, Dubber undertakes an incisive comparative reading of American criminal law and the law of crime victim compensation, culminating in a wide-ranging revision that takes victims seriously, and offenders as well. Dubber here salvages the project of vindicating victims' rights for its own sake, rather than as a weapon in the war against criminals. Uncovering the legitimate core of the victims' rights movement from underneath existing layers of bellicose rhetoric, he demonstrates how victims' rights can help us build a system of American criminal justice after the frenzy of the war on crime has died down
The police power : patriarchy and the foundations of American government by Markus Dirk Dubber( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mention the phrase "Homeland Security" and heated debates emerge about state uses and abuses of legal authority. However, even before its recent growth, the power to police had represented a vast expansion of legislative and regulative power at all levels of U.S. governance, from the federal government down to the smallest municipalities
Police and the liberal state( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Police and the Liberal State advances a broad interdisciplinary and international project to refocus attention on the scope and function of modern governance through the lens of the police power in its multiple manifestations - from the family to the police station and the prison, and from municipal government to state sovereignty and global security - and techniques - surveillance, control, and licensing, as well as ordinances, regulations, and administrative, constitutional, and criminal law."--Jacket
The sense of justice : empathy in law and punishment by Markus Dirk Dubber( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new police science : the police power in domestic and international governance( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely volume provides a critical analysis of the most comprehensive and least comprehended of state powers, the power to police, broadly understood as the power to maximize public welfare--or, more colorfully, its "peace, order, and good government." Featuring contributions by leading scholars from several countries working in a variety of fields, including law, criminology, political science, history, sociology, and social theory, The New Police Science examines the power to police as a basic technology of modern government that appears in a vast array of sites of governance, including not only the state, but also the household, the factory, the military, and--most recently--the global realm of war, police actions, and peacekeeping. This volume resurrects and radically re-envisions the once thriving study of police science as a comprehensive critical inquiry into the nature of governance."--Publisher's website
Modern histories of crime and punishment( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford handbook of criminal law( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reflects the continued transformation of criminal law into a global discipline, providing scholars with a comprehensive international resource, a common point of entry into cutting edge contemporary research and a snapshot of the state and scope of the field. To this end, the Handbook takes a broad approach to its subject matter, disciplinarily, geographically, and systematically. Its contributors include current and future research leaders representing a variety of legal systems, methodologies, areas of expertise, and research agendas. The book is divided into four parts: Approaches & Methods (I), Systems & Methods (II), Aspects & Issues (III), and Contexts & Comparisons (IV). Part I includes essays exploring various methodological approaches to criminal law (such as criminology, feminist studies, and history). Part II provides an overview of systems or models of criminal law, laying the foundation for further inquiry into specific conceptions of criminal law as well as for comparative analysis (such as Islamic, Marxist, and military law). Part III covers the three aspects of the penal process: the definition of norms and principles of liability (substantive criminal law), along with a less detailed treatment of the imposition of norms (criminal procedure) and the infliction of sanctions (prison or corrections law). Contributors consider the basic topics traditionally addressed in scholarship on the general and special parts of the substantive criminal law (such as jurisdiction, mens rea, justifications, and excuses). Part IV places criminal law in context, both domestically and transnationally, by exploring the contrasts between criminal law and other species of law and state power and by investigating criminal law's place in the projects of comparative law, transnational, and international law
