State Crime: Governments, Violence and Corruption

by Penny Green & Tony Ward - £24.99  Pluto Press (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745317847 | ISBN 10: 0745317847

What is state crime? This book sets out the parameters of state crime and highlights the complex issues involved. The authors provide a clear chapter-by-chapter assessment of state violence, corruption, state involvement in organised and corporate crime, avoidable 'natural' disasters, torture, criminal policing, war crimes and genocide.
 
The authors put forward a powerful argument drawing from a range of disciplines including law, criminology, human rights, international relations and political science. They develop a theoretical approach to state crime, employing the concepts of organisational deviance and human rights. Making distinctive use of original research and using a variety of international case studies, this compelling book offers a fresh and sophisticated approach to this controversial and difficult subject.
