First Published in 1995. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
In original essays, political scientists, sociologists, criminologists, and lawyers, including many activists, review the previous research on state crime and outline methods to control it. The contributors examine efforts to control the state in general, as well as means for controlling those who actually engage in the criminal activity. The volume's subject matter is divided into major definitional and conceptual problems, causes and processes, victims and their allies, internal controls on state crimogenic organizations, external domestic controls and international controls, and the future prospects for controlling state crime.
