M.Brown, J.Pratt, "Dangerous Offenders; Punishment and Social Order"
Routledge | ISBN 0415200482 | 2000 Year | PDF | 1,18 Mb | 208 Pages


"Brown and Pratt bring together scholars from the fields of criminology, sociology, and law who interrogate the idea that "dangerous offenders" pose qualifiable "risks" to the public. The authors consider ideas of danger, social threat, and legal responses to violent criminals in their historical contexts and critique systematic efforts to predict dangerous individuals.."
–Law and Social Inquiry, Vol. 27, Number 1.

"To the editors' credit, this volume offers a rich "sampling" (p. 6) of work on dangerousness and risk from several nations and is well organized. It will be of interest to researchers in criminology, sociologies of law, penality, and criminal justice, as well as to anyone interested in the "risk society" thesis and "governmentality" studies. While too advanced for undergraduate students, this book will make a superb text for a graduate course in any of these subfields. Overall, it effectively critiques criminological writings on dangerousness and problematizes existingnotions of dangerousness and risk. In short, this book accomplishes what it sets of to do.."
–American Journal of Sociology

"Brown and Pratt bring together scholars from the fields of criminology, sociology, and law who interrogate the idea that "dangerous offenders" pose quantifiable "risks" to the public. The authors consider ideas of danger, social threat, and legal responses to violent criminals in their historical contexts and critique systematic efforts to predict dangerous individuals. Law and Society Inquiry Vol. 27, Number 1 ."
"This volume adds to the extensive literature on dangerousness by seeking to analyze the theoretical rationale underpinning the shift from predictive studies to a broader concern with the ubiquity of risk and its accompanying management strategies… Although I have illustrated some equivocation about the way which the editorial challenge has been met, this volume presents a solid framework of current data and theoretical analyses of the meaning dangerousness in the current political and penal climate.."
–Current Issues in Criminal Justice, Deidre Greig, University of Melbourne

"This collection represents a well-rounded, well-written yet brief compendium of some of the key issues facing criminal justice today. Meant for those already familiar with some of the underlying currents of criminal justice policy, this collection deserves a broad audience, as it forcefully points to some of the implications of these trends for future generations."
–Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology
