What is state crime? This book sets out the parameters of state crime and highlights the complex issues involved. The authors provide a clear chapter-by -chapter assessment of state violence, corruption, state involvement in organised and corporate crime, avoidable ‘natural’ disasters, torture, criminal policing, war crimes and genocide.Penny Green and Tony Ward put forward a powerful argument drawing from a range of disciplines including law, criminology, human rights, international relations and political science. They develop a theoretical approach to understanding the boundaries of state crime, employing the concepts of deviance and human rights. Making distinctive use of original research and using a variety of international case-studies, this compelling book offers a fresh and sophisticated approach to this controversial and difficult subject.
