from the manufacturer

For decades, scholars have disagreed about what kinds of behavior count as crime. Is it simply a violation of the criminal law Is it behavior that causes serious harm Is the seriousness affected by how many people are harmed and does it make a difference who those people are Are crimes less criminal if the victims are black, lower class, or foreigners When corporations victimize workers is that a crime What about when governments violate basic human rights of their citizens, and who then polices governments In What Is Crime the first book-length treatment of the topic, contributors debate the content of crime from diverse perspectives: consensusmoral, culturalrelative, conflictpower, anarchistcritical, feminist, racialethnic, postmodernist, and integrational. Henry and Lanier synthesize these perspectives and explore what each means for crime control policy.
