Why do offenders use violence? This is one of the most frequently asked questions and one that is explored directly through an analysis of 123 accounts of violent property crime.This book puts the rise in acquisitive crimes in a social context and asks questions about the needs of young males in Australian society. It also contains an analysis of approaches to crime prevention.Professor Frank Zimring, Director of the Earl Warren Legal Institute at the University of California, Berkeley, says in his foreword to this important study:"The multi-faceted and detailed report is of interest to a general audience for two reasons. It provides information on risks and patterns of crime that hold true for the rest of Australia. It also provides a model of the kind of work that is needed when hard questions must be asked about the nature and cost of crime in a specific setting."

An examination of the relationship between sentencing law and policy as it has evolved in Victoria over more than a century. In this major addition to the Australasian Studies in Criminology Series, the authors outline the relationship between sentencing reform and penal change: how sentencing systems develop and operate; how and why certain sanctions are created, how they are implemented and how they interact with each other. The authors argue that legislative sentencing reform and its effects can only be understood as one element in a larger set of institutional, political and demographic factors which influence the criminal justice system as a whole. They draw comparisons with other Australian States and experience overseas where their findings and analysis have great relevance.

Digital technology has transformed the way in which we socialise and do business. Proving the maxim that crime follows opportunity, virtually every advance has been accompanied by a corresponding niche to be exploited for criminal purposes; so-called 'cybercrimes'. Whether it be fraud, child pornography, stalking, criminal copyright infringement or attacks on computers themselves, criminals will find ways to exploit new technology. The challenge for all countries is to ensure their criminal laws keep pace. The challenge is a global one, and much can be learned from the experience of other jurisdictions. Focusing on Australia, Canada, the UK and the USA, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the legal principles that apply to the prosecution of cybercrimes. This new edition has been fully revised to take into account changes in online offending, as well as new case law and legislation in this rapidly developing area of the law.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

This book assesses the principles and practices of family group conferences in the juvenile justice and child protection systems. All the chapters emphasise the values which distinguish family group conferences from conventional mechanisms for making decisions about young people who are either in need of care and protection or who commit offences: respecting the integrity of the family unit; including the extended family; strengthening family and community supports; sharing power between the state and families; creating opportunities for parents to feel responsible for their children and themselves; and showing sensitivity and respect for families cultures.

Why Crime Rates Fall, and Why They Don't

Violent and property crime rates in all Western countries have been falling since the early and mid-1990s, after rising in the 1970s and 1980s. Few people have noticed the common patterns and fewer have attempted to understand or explain them. Yet the implications are essential for thinking about crime control and criminal justice policy more broadly. Crime rates in Canada and the United States, for example, have moved in parallel for 40 years, but Canada has neither increased its imprisonment rate nor adopted harsher criminal justice policies. The implication is that something other than mass imprisonment, zero-tolerance policing, and “three-strikes” laws explains why crime rates in our time are falling. The essays in this 43rd volume of Crime and Justice explore the possibilities cross-nationally. They document the common rises and falls in crime and look at possible explanations, including changes in sensitivity to violence generally and intimate violence in particular, macro-level changes in self-control, and structural and economic developments in modern states. The contributors to this volume include Marcelo Aebi, Andromachi Tseloni, Eric Baumer, Manuel Eisner, Graham Farrell, Janne Kivivuori, Tapio Lappi-Seppälä, Suzy McElrath, Richard Rosenfeld, Rossella Selmini, Nick Tilley, and Kevin T. Wolff.

Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts kommt der englische Gentleman und Nichtstuer Rudolf Rassendyll als Tourist in den fiktiven Kleinstaat Ruritanien, der irgendwo südlich von Dresden liegt. Seine unglaubliche Ähnlichkeit mit dem von finsteren Schurken und politischen Intriganten entführten Monarchen zwingen ihn bald, dessen Stelle einzunehmen, da die Vertrauten des Königs um jeden Preis verhindern wollen, dass der Thron einem Usurpator zugeschanzt wird...Der im Jahre 1894 erstmals erschienene, äußerst rasante und selbstironische Fantasy-Abenteuerklassiker gehört zu den populärsten Romanen des englischen Sprachraums und wurde mehrmals mit großem Aufwand verfilmt. Die nicht minder spannende, ebenfalls von Anthony Hope verfasste Fortsetzung erscheint ebenfalls im Apex-Verlag unter dem Titel Die Rückkehr nach Zenda.Beide Romane wurden ins Deutsche übersetzt von Ronald M. Hahn.
