Criminology and Justice Studies

Series Editor: Chester Britt, Shaun Gabbidon

Criminology and Justice Studies publishes books for undergraduate and graduate courses that model the best scholarship and innovative thinking in the criminology and criminal justice field today, but in a style that connects this scholarship to a wide audience of students, researchers, and possibly the general public.

We are particularly interested in proposals that offer a global perspective on crime and justice, that present a novel approach to more traditional areas of study, or that develop a new way to incorporate the wide and evolving array of digital technologies available to college and university instructors. If you have a publishing project to propose, we look forward to hearing from you! Please contact any of our Series Editors or the Routledge Editor, Joseph Parry.
