43. Criminological and Legal Consequences of Climate Change

Editors: Stephen Farrall, Tawhida Ahmed & Duncan French

2012 , 282 p. , ISBN: 9781849461863 (Hb) ; 9781847319203 (pdf) ; 9781847319210 (ePub)

This volume explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change, both domestically and for the international community. A novel feature of the book is the consideration given to the potential synergies between the two disciplinary foci, thus to encourage among legal scholars and criminologists not only an analysis of the consequences of climate change from these perspectives but to bring these fields together to provide a unique, inter-disciplinary exploration of the ways in which climate change does, or could, impact on our societies.

This volume takes a critical look at the gender of tax policy around the world. Contributors based in eight different countries examine the profound effects that gender norms and practices have had in shaping tax law and policy, and how taxation in turn impacts upon the possibilities for equality along gender, race, class, sexuality and other lines.

41. Feminist Perspectives on Contemporary International Law

Editors: Sari Kouvo & Zoe Pearson

2011 , 250 p. , ISBN: 9781841134284 (Hb) ; 9781849466585 (Pb) ; 9781847316479 (pdf) ; 9781782255857 (ePub)

The essays in this volume analyse feminism's positioning vis-à-vis international law and the current paradigms of international law. The authors argue that, willingly or unwillingly, feminist perspectives on international law have come to be situated between 'resistance' and 'compliance'. That is, feminist scholarship aims at deconstructing international law to show why and how 'women' have been marginalised; at the same time feminists have been largely unwilling to challenge the core of international law and its institutions, remaining hopeful of international law's potential for women.

39. Emotions, Crime and Justice

Editors: Susanne Karstedt, Ian Loader & Heather Strang

2011 , 394 p. , ISBN: 9781849461610 (Hb) ; 9781849466837 (Pb) ; 9781847316455 (pdf) ; 9781847317834 (ePub)

The return of emotions to debates about crime and criminal justice has been a striking development of recent decades across many jurisdictions. This has been registered in the return of shame to justice procedures, a heightened focus on victims and their emotional needs, fear of crime as a major preoccupation of citizens and politicians, and highly emotionalised public discourses on crime and justice. But how can we best make sense of these developments?
