Research & Reference

  1. NEW - Human Smuggling and Border Crossings by Gabriella Sanchez

    Human Smuggling and Border Crossings is a landmark book on an epochal issue for Arizona, the United States, and the 21st Century world. At the same time deeply personal and coolly objective, the book provides a unique insight into the lived experiences of smuggling, for migrants, smugglers, and the authorities, and in so doing explodes many of the myths that have distorted our understanding and policy responses to human smuggling.’ - Khalid Koser MBE, Associate Fellow, Geneva Centre for Security Policy

  2. NEW! - The Routledge Handbook on Crime and International Migration

    A stunning, interdisciplinary, international collection of original work, this Handbook challenges the bright line that has been drawn between regular and irregular migration, criminals and victims, and security and mobility. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how and why the immigration threat has been produced as a political project, the book refocuses our attention on the devastating social and human costs associated with making people illegal. An absolutely foundational contribution to the development of a "criminology of mobility."’ - Nancy A. Wonders, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Northern Arizona University, USA.

General Interest

  1. Review of ‘Understanding Penal Practice’ from Scottish Justice Matters

    “A book aiming to increase our understanding of penal practice without concentrating primarily upon prisons is to be welcomed. Focusing on community supervision this volume scores a hit from that perspective alone… This is a volume of many strengths: it is well-structured and keeps its focus on practitioners to enable in depth consideration… From the outset the editors were clear about their aims. The project is well-conceived and well executed and has resulted in an important collection that should be read by policymakers and community justice practitioners, in addition to a broad range of academics.”Scottish Justice Matters
