About this item

Whilst the notion of social harm’ has long interested critical criminologists, it is now being explored as an alternative field of study, which provides more accurate analyses of the vicissitudes of life. However, important aspects of this notion remain undeveloped, in particular the definition of social harm, the question of responsibility and methodologies for studying harm.  This book is the first to theorise and define the social harm’ concept beyond criminology and seeks to address these omissions and, in doing so, provide a platform for future debates, in this series and beyond. It will be a valuable resource for academics and researchers across criminology, sociology, social policy, socio-legal studies and geography.
