Crime, Institutional Knowledge and Power : The Rich Criminological Legacy of Richard Ericson Hardback
Part of the Pioneers in Contemporary Criminology series
Criminology lost a world leader with the untimely death of Richard Ericson in 2007.
Ericson was one of the most prolific, influential and widely cited criminologists of his generation, producing monumental and pathbreaking works on how the criminal justice system and other key institutions attempt to control crime, manage risk and produce security.
This volume, edited by three of Professor Ericson's colleagues and co-authors, presents a sampling of Ericson's acclaimed work on such topics as juvenile justice, policing, the courts, the media, the insurance industry, and national security.
The book is required reading for scholars interested in understanding the dynamics of crime, risk and security and for those eager to learn more about one of the field's most important and innovative researchers and scholars.
