Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521621259, Hardcover)Crime is becoming as much a feature of the emergent globalized culture as other forms of consumerism. The Globalization of Crime presents an integrated theory of crime and social context, examining trends in criminalization, crime and social development, social control and the political economy of crime in order to understand the role of crime in social change. This is the first book to challenge existing analyses of crime in the context of globalization and show crime is as much a force for globalization as globalization is a force for crime.

The Globalisation of Crime charts crime's evolution. It analyses how globalisation has enhanced material crime relationships such that they must be understood on the same terms as any other significant market force. Trends in criminalisation, crime and social development, crime and social control, the political economy of crime, and crime in transitional cultures are all examined in order to understand the role of crime as an agent of social change. In this first book to challenge existing analyses of crime in the context of global transition, crime is shown to be as much a force for globalisation as globalisation is a force for crime, and an integrated theory of crime and social context is presented.
