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 signifi cance 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

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.

For decades, Milton Santos (1926-2001) has been considered one of the most influential thinkers in Brazilian and Latin American social sciences and geography. Yet his writings, most of which have not been translated into English, are largely unknown to European and North American audiences. This book introduces English-speaking scholars to Professor Santos through critical engagement with his ideas and writings. The chapters presented here reveal the breadth and originality of his critical thought, as well as its ongoing importance to contemporary debates. The book features a biography of Santos and includes an annotated translation of one of his most-cited texts, The Return of the Territory, offered here for the first time in English. This text demonstrates how Santos’s provocative insights continue to transform core concepts of political and human geography. The book also includes a number of short chapters written by scholars from Brazil, Spain and France. Through reflections on Santos’s work, the various authors demonstrate the value and possibilities of extending the geographer’s theories. They explore key geographical themes across political economy, rural studies, territorial planning, environmental crisis, digital networks, indigenous peoples, transportation and public health. This collection invites geographers from around the world to engage with this rich intellectual tradition from Brazil.
