This unique book, edited by John Winterdyk of Mount Royal University, includes insightful profiles and first-person accounts of the men and women who have shaped Canadian criminology and criminal justice from colonial times to the present. Intriguing memoirs by Patricia L. Brantingham and Paul J. Brantingham, Ezzat Fattah, ArlEne Gaudreault, Jim Hackler, Marc Le Blanc, Irvin Waller, Jo-Anne Wemmers provide a ringside seat to the evolution of criminology and related disciplines and sub-disciplines, including criminal justice, victimology, and the study of corrections and policing. In addition, the contributions of numerous other pioneers are also profiled in contributions by respected scholars; these include such giants of the field as Jean-Paul Brodeur, Anthony Doob, Richard Ericson, Tadeusz Grygier, Gwynne Nettler, AndrE Normandeau, Dennis Szabo, and many others. Adding further value and interest are four thematic chapters: Ritesh Dalip Narayan discusses pioneers of the Canadian legal system, Joshua Murphy and Curt Taylor Griffiths examine key contributors to the study and practice of policing, Rick Ruddell provides an overview of important figures in corrections, while Steven Kohm and Michael Weinrath consider the development and proliferation of programs in criminology and criminal justice at the post-secondary level. Lisa Monchalin has contributed an insightful foreword to this ground-breaking volume, which promises to be of interest to students, scholars, and practitioners alike. Edited by John Winterdyk. Foreword by Lisa Monchalin. With contributions by Steven Kohm and Michael Weinrath - FranCois Fenchel - Ezzat A. Fattah - BenoIt Dupont - Marc Le Blanc - Jo-Anne Wemmers - Jim Hackler - Kevin D. Haggerty, Aaron Doyle and Janet Chan - Irvin Waller - Patricia L. Brantingham and Paul J. Brantingham - ArlEne Gaudreault - Ritesh Dalip Narayan - Joshua Murphy and Curt Taylor Griffiths - Rick Ruddell "As academic disciplines, Canadian criminology and criminal justice have a rich and varied albeit compara-tively short history. It was just over 50 years ago that the first criminol-ogy program was established at the UniversitE de MontrEal. Aside from a growing number of tributes occasioned by the passing of key academics and practitioners in the field and the odd Festschrift (a publication honouring an academic scholar, presented during his or her lifetime), until now we have no consoli-dated account of the legacy of the pio-neers who have helped forge these disci-plines." --from the Introduction by John Winterdyk "Fills a knowledge void for both students and most scholars. These pioneers have influenced several generations of research and criminal justice policy not only in Canada but also globally. Their scholarship continues to inspire. A wonderful contribution to the field." --Ray Corrado, Simon Fraser University "The pioneers represented in this volume clearly articulate the significance of their contributions within the theoretical, practical and policy-oriented realms, as well as their tireless efforts to bring criminological inquiry to students. This very accessible book should inspire current scholars and students alike to further the contributions already made by Canadians." --Nick Jones, University of Regina

Taking a grounded, real-world approach, the third edition of Canadian Criminology draws on a wealth of research, engaging case studies, and updated Canadian statistics to provide a clear overview of the field today. By starting with a foundation of history, methods, and public perception ofcrime; moving on to classical, biological, psychological, and sociological theory; then covering specific crime typologies; before ending with a look to the future of the discipline, Canadian Criminology anchors students in the discipline while providing engaging examples and data that bring thetheory to life and help them to understand how to apply their knowledge to criminology in the field. Thoroughly revised with new material in every chapter, including new case studies, statistics, discussions of current and controversial topics - such as Bill C-10 (the "omnibus crime bill"), the federal Victim's Bill of Rights, and prostitution legislation - and an entirely new chapter on emergingcrime trends such as bullying, cybercrime, and transnational crimes, the new edition is up-to-date and interesting for students. With an expanded art program and a brand new suite of ancillaries, Canadian Criminology is an accessible and entertaining introduction to the discipline.

This book presents the work of a new generation of critical criminologists who explore the geographical, institutional, and political contexts of the discipline in Canada. Breaking away from mainstream criminology and law-and-order discourses, the authors offer a spectrum of theoretical approaches to criminal justice -- from governmentality to feminist criminology, from critical realism to anarchism � and they propose novel approaches to topics ranging from genocide to white-collar crime. By posing crucial questions and attempting to define what criminology should be, this book will shape debates about crime, policing, and punishment for years to come.

The public health movement involved numerous individuals who made the case for change and put new practices into place. However despite a growing interest in how we understand history to inform current evidence-based practice, there is no book focusing on our progressive pioneers in public health and environmental health. This book seeks to fill that gap. It examines carefully selected public and environmental health pioneers who made a real difference to the UK’s health, some with international influence. Many of these pioneers were criticised in their life-times, yet they had the strength of character to know what they were doing was fundamentally right and persevered, often against many odds. Including chapters on: Thomas Fresh John Snow Duncan of Liverpool Margaret McMillan George Cadbury Christopher Addison Margery Spring Rice and others.? This book will help readers place pioneers in a wider context and to make more sense of their academic and practitioner work today; how evidence (and what was historically understood by it) underpins modern day practice; and how these visionary pioneers developed their ideas into practice, some not fully appreciated until after their own deaths. Pioneers in Public Health sets the tone for a renewed focus on research into evidence-based public and environmental health, which has become subject of growing international interest in recent years.

Indigenous peoples are vastly overrepresented in the Canadian criminal justice system. The Canadian government has framed this disproportionate victimization and criminalization as being an "Indian problem." In The Colonial Problem, Lisa Monchalin challenges the myth of the "Indian problem" and encourages readers to view the crimes and injustices affecting Indigenous peoples from a more culturally aware position. She analyzes the consequences of assimilation policies, dishonoured treaty agreements, manipulative legislation, and systematic racism, arguing that the overrepresentation of Indigenous peoples in the Canadian criminal justice system is not an Indian problem but a colonial one.

The study of crime has focused primarily on why particular people commit crime or why specific communities have higher crime levels than others. In The Criminology of Place, David Weisburd, Elizabeth Groff, and Sue-Ming Yang present a new and different way of looking at the crime problem by examining why specific streets in a city have specific crime trends over time. Based on a 16-year longitudinal study of crime in Seattle, Washington, the book focuses our attention on small units of geographic analysis-micro communities, defined as street segments. Half of all Seattle crime each year occurs on just 5-6 percent of the city's street segments, yet these crime hot spots are not concentrated in a single neighborhood and street by street variability is significant. Weisburd, Groff, and Yang set out to explain why. The Criminology of Place shows how much essential information about crime is inevitably lost when we focus on larger units like neighborhoods or communities. Reorienting the study of crime by focusing on small units of geography, the authors identify a large group of possible crime risk and protective factors for street segments and an array of interventions that could be implemented to address them. The Criminology of Place is a groundbreaking book that radically alters traditional thinking about the crime problem and what we should do about it.
