Gary Craig, Professor of Social Justice, University of Hull, UK
This book explores ways of defining and enacting social justice in the context of modern social welfare and crime control policies. It examines how the notion of social justice informs experiences and understandings of the social world, why it appeals to so many people as a mobilising ideal for social change and reform, and how it shapes the claims, demands and actions that people take in the pursuit of the 'good society'.
The authors employ an interdisciplinary approach to explore the interrelationship between social policy and criminology. With international content and a sustained focus across the book on different kinds of evidence, it helps readers to gauge the role of evidence in social science and policy development.Designed as an interactive teaching text, the book includes a range of student-friendly learning features, such as case studies, activities and questions for discussion, making it ideal for both classroom-based and distance learners.
Social Justice is a key text for students in criminology, social policy and social justice.
