This book constitutes the most comprehensive and authoritative single work on crime and punishment in contemporary Greece. Bringing together empirical and theoretical work, it sheds light on a wide array of themes, from trends in the quantity and nature of crime, to attitudes towards crime and criminal justice, to criminal justice policies and practices. Primary chapters are followed by discussant pieces from specialists of jurisdictions elsewhere in Europe and North America, a format designed to highlight the mutual relevance of criminological research on Greece and that addressing other contexts internationally.
