Understanding the Risk Society : Crime, Security and Justice
Completed my degree thus letting go this key text. Used but not abused book. Still in very good condition. If you are a current student doing Crim and Security in SIT-University of Liverpool, special price for you (verification needed). PM me! Description (from Books Depository): In this penetrating account of the impacts of risk on everyday life, Gabe Mythen provides a theoretically informed overview of the regulation of crime and security in a globalized world. By explicating the relationships between risk and crime, security and justice, the text applies risk to specific incidents and events, scrutinizing social processes and cultural practices, and illumining some of the central social and political issues of the modern age. Extending across a range of domains - including law, the environment, media and politics - Mythen embarks on a conceptual and critical exploration of risk theory. In doing so, his incisive text presents both a critical evaluation of the efficacy of competing perspectives on risk, and an authoritative appraisal of the place of risk within the social sciences. Price is FIRM and strictly NON-NEGOTIABLE. No trades too! Please PM me to deal. Thank you for viewing.
