Leanne Weber, Elaine Fishwick and Marinella Marmo (2014) Crime, Justice and Human Rights. Palgrave Macmillan.


Crime, Justice and Human Rights is an invaluable resource for those interested in the growing links between human rights, criminal justice and criminology. The authors have succeeded in producing a systematic survey of issues and debates arising at the contemporary interface of human rights and criminal justice that is comprehensive in its coverage of the literature and core topics, richly informative, clear and accessible. As such the book is highly recommended as a text for upper undergraduate or postgraduate units on human rights and criminal justice/criminology. Of particular note in this regard are the additional resources and useful links provided at the end of each chapter. But to commend it only as a text would sell it short, for it introduces and engages theoretical debates and critical perspectives around human rights in a way that will be of interest to an academic audience well beyond the classroom setting.
