Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Greece: International Comparative Perspectives
L. K. Cheliotis and S. Xenakis (2011, forthcoming) Crime and Punishment in Contemporary Greece: International Comparative Perspectives. Oxford: Peter Lang AG.
This book constitutes the most comprehensive and authoritative single work on crime and its control in contemporary Greece. Bringing together empirical and theoretical work, it sheds light on such diverse themes as fear of crime; media, crime and criminal justice; youth and crime; immigration, crime and criminal justice; corruption; organised crime and political violence; surveillance; sex trafficking; drugs, crime and criminal justice; honour, violence and crime; the impact of the EU on criminal justice; policing; youth justice and probation; the adult judicial system; and prisons and parole. Primary chapters are followed by discussant pieces from internationally recognised non-Greek generalists, a format that highlights the wider relevance of criminological research on Greece to international audiences.
