'Findlay is to be congratulated for producing a book that is both highly theoretical, but also accessible, and one that succeeds in developing a strong criminological foothold within an emergent globalised culture ... a tour de force.' The Howard Journal
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.
