This edited volume presents the diversity of comparative criminology research in Asia, and the complex theoretical and methodological issues involved in conducting comparative research. With contributors both from the West and the East exploring these questions, the Editors have created a balanced resource, as well as set an agenda for future research. The increasing pace of globalization means that researchers should be armed with an understanding of how criminal justice systems work across the world. In the past, comparative research largely compared Western countries to each other, or involve d researchers from a Western perspective examining an Asian country, with models and theories developed in the West considered to have universal applications. This work aims to correct that gap, by providing a critical examination of comparative research, presenting quantitative and qualitative research data, and asking new questions that challenge prevailing research norms and provide an agenda for future research. This work will be of interest for researchers across the field of Criminology, particularly those with an interest in International and Comparative Research, research on or about Asia, and related disciplines such as Sociology, Demography, and Social Policy. “This fine collection that goes to the rich distinctiveness of Asian criminology. The editors have brought together a wonderful collection of authors mainly from the region. The distinctiveness of values and relational practices in Asia are recurrent themes that are well developed in this book and help us to make sense of patterns of crime and criminal justice in Asia.” John Braithwaite, Australian National University “What theoretical, methodological, and practical issues must we confront in conducting cross-cultural studies encompassing Western and Asian countries? Comparative Criminology in Asia discusses these issues and presents exemplary comparative research. The introductory chapter and the introduction to each part by the co-editors are lucid and highly educational. This collection must be required reading for every serious scholar and aspiring graduate student in Asian countries so that criminological and criminal justice studies will be brought to a much higher level o f sophistication.” Setsuo Miyazawa, UC Hastings “Can there be – and should there be -- a distinctive Asian criminology? What would this involve? The answer depends on what one thinks of the universalistic explanatory claims of Western criminology. Will these claims become self- fulfilling as these societies add to colonial influences a more deliberate borrowing of criminal justice models and established ways of pursuing discipline of criminology? Or will a more critical spirit prevail? This welcome edited collection by Liu, Travers and Chang provides an excellent starting point for reflecting on these and other questions. Rather than attempting to provide descriptions of the variety of similarities and differences in this region (though there are some fascinating case studies of these) the focus is even more on exploring the theoretical approa ches and methodologies used in comparing institutional and cultural differences by Asian criminologists and others.” David Nelken, King’s College, London “Criminologists can no longer ignore the impact of globalization on the pattern and amount of crime as we experienced recently, nor can we ignore the global change of criminal justice policies to deal with crime. There is, therefore, a desperate need to collect data on how crime and criminal justice are influenced by globalization across Asian countries. On the other hand, there are debates on the issue of culture-specific vs. pan-culture theories of crime. This collection addresses both issues in an interesting way. Its publication is timely and welcome.” Chuen-Jim Sheu, National Taipei University

This book provides an important overview of key criminology and criminal justice concerns in Japan. It highlights similarities between the practice of criminology research in Japan, as well as important differences, with other areas of Asia and with the West. In previous decades, Japan attracted international attention as the only industrialized country where the crime rate declined along with a rise in urbanization and economic development. Currently, Japan still enjoys a declining crime rate (the lowest among major industrialized countries) and a study of criminal justice practices in Japan may provide important insights for other regions. Japan also experiences important contemporary challenges which are shared by other regions: 1. Japan has the highest proportion of people over the age of 60 in the world. For criminology, this means key challenges in the victimization of older people, as well as the challenges of an aging prison population. 2. Besides the United States, Japan is the only developed country that still practices capital punishment, and its rate has been on the rise in the past 20 years. 3. Japan has also introduced new reforms in its law practice, including the introduction of new trial formats. The research in this book provides a helpful overview for scholars interested in criminology and criminal justice in Japan to understand the key issues of concern, and present a framework for future research needs. It will be of interest to researchers in criminology and criminal justice, international studies, Asian Studies, sociology, and political science.

The Handbook of Asian Criminology aims to be a key reference for international scholars with an interest in the broad theme of international criminology in general, and the Asian region in particular. Contextualization is a key theme in this book. The role of context is often underemphasized in international criminology, so the Handbook of Asian Criminology’s premise that crime and the responses to it are best understood as deeply embedded in the cultural specificity of the environment which produces them will play a key role throughout the work. Attention will be given to country- and region specific attitudes towards crime and punishment.

This Festschrift on Hans-Jurgen Kerner's 70th birthday pays tribute to a legal expert and criminologist whose work and impact which, while meeting high scholarly standards, never lost its practical relevance. The interdisciplinarity of his work and his endeavors to participate actively in the shaping of criminal policy are important aspects of this work. At a time in which German criminology is once again dealing intensively and critically with its history and its criminological and scholarly significance, the Festschrift, with articles on criminology, crime prevention and criminal policy, criminal law and criminal law relating to young offenders as well as criminal procedure and execution of a prison sentence, also contributes to raising the awareness of the scholarly profile of criminology.

Recently the topic of civil society has generated a wave of interest, and a wealth of new information. Until now no publication has attempted to organize and consolidate this knowledge. The International Encyclopedia of Civil Society fills this gap, establishing a common set of understandings and terminology, and an analytical starting point for future research. Global in scope and authoritative in content, the Encyclopedia offers succinct summaries of core concepts and theories; definitions of terms; biographical entries on important figures and organizational profiles. In addition, it serves as a reliable and up-to-date guide to additional sources of information. In sum, the Encyclopedia provides an overview of the contours of civil society, social capital, philanthropy and nonprofits across cultures and historical periods. For researchers in nonprofit and civil society studies, political science, economics, management and social enterprise, this is the most systematic appraisal of a rapidly growing field.

Der vorliegende Sammelband ist das erste Werk seiner Art, das speziell der Grammatikalisierung im Deutschen gewidmet ist. In 15 Artikeln befassen sich die Autoren mit der Entstehung und dem historischen Wandel von grammatischen Elementen und Konstruktionen im nominalen Bereich, im verbalen Bereich sowie im Bereich zwischen Grammatik und Diskurs. Die Beiträge gehen vom theoretischen und methodologischen Diskussionsstand der internationalen Grammatikalisierungsforschung aus und suchen Antworten auf Fragen bezüglich der Systematik und Interaktion von Sprachwandelprozessen, ihrer funktionalen Motivationen und ihrer kognitiven Einbettung. Das Ergebnis ist ein Kompendium, das nicht nur für Germanisten von Interesse ist, sondern durch seine theoretische und empirische Reichweite auch Wissenschaftler anspricht, die sich für Grammatikalisierungsphänomene im Allgemeinen interessieren. Der Band enthält u. a. Beiträge von Elisabeth Leiss, Damaris Nübling, John Ole Askedal, Gabriele Diewald, Mechthild Habermann, Peter Auer und Susanne Günthner.

Für Johan Goudsblom brachte die Entdeckung des Feuers und seiner Kontrolle in der Vorgeschichte eine radikale Umstellung der menschlichen Kultur. Dieser ersten grundlegenden ökologischen Wende folgten mit dem Ackerbau und der industriellen Revolution weitere Entwicklungsphasen im Umgang mit Feuer und deshalb mit der materiellen Umwelt und der ganzen Gesellschaft. Bis in unsere Tage ist die Kontrolle des Feuers ein integraler Bestandteil der Gesellschaften, die Menschen miteinander bilden. Die erste Auflage erschien 1995 beim Suhrkamp Verlag.

In Wissenschaft, Praxis und Ausbildung ist seit einigen Jahren das Strafrecht in seiner internationalen Bedeutung verstarkt in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses geruckt. Und das zu Recht: Denn zunehmend haben wir es mit Kriminalitat zu tun, die "uber die Grenzen" hinweg agiert, und eine strafrechtliche Zusammenarbeit auf internationaler Ebene bedingt. So hat die Europaische Union - nicht zuletzt seit dem Vertrag von Lissabon - starke Moglichkeiten, das nationale Straf- und Strafverfahrensrecht zu beeinflussen. Auf volkerrechtlicher Ebene ist sogar ein ganzlich eigenstandiges Strafrechtssystem fur volkerrechtliche Verbrechen entstanden, das spatestens seit den ersten Urteilen der internationalen Gerichte - nun auch des standigen Internationalen Strafgerichtshofs - effektiv zur Durchsetzung gelangt. Das - mittlerweile in 7. Auflage vorliegende - Lehrbuch will dieser internationalen Dimension gerecht werden, indem das Strafanwendungsrecht, das Straf- und Strafverfahrensrecht der Europaischen Union, die einschlagigen Garantien der Europaischen Menschenrechtskonvention sowie das Volkerstrafrecht in seinen wesentlichen Grundzugen dargestellt werden. Die Neuauflage ist durchgangig aktualisiert, uberarbeitet und zum Teil erweitert. Zur Erleichterung der Arbeit mit diesem Buch finden sich - in bewahrter Manier - alle wichtigen Dokumente, auf die Bezug genommen wird, auf einer standig aktualisierten Homepage (www.lehrbuch-satzger.de).

Vulnerability is an essential but also an intriguing ambiguous part of the human condition. This book con-ceptualizes vulnerability to be a fundamental threat and deficit and at the same time to be a powerful resource for transformation.The exploration is undertaken in multidisciplinary perspectives and approaches the human condition in fruitful conversations with medical, psychological, legal, theological, political and philosophical investiga-tions of vulnerability.The multidisciplinary approach opens the space for a broad variety of deeply interrelated topics. Thus, vulnerability is analyzed with respect to diverse aspects of human and social life, such as violence and power, the body and social institutions. Theologically questions of sin and redemption and eventually the nature of the Divine are taken up. Throughout the book phenomenological descriptions are combined with necessary conceptual clarifications. The contributions seek to illuminate the relation between vulnerability as a fundamental unavoidable condition and contingent actualizations related to specific dangers and risks. The core thesis of the book can be seen within its multi-perspectivity: A sound concept of vulnerability is key to a realistic, that is to say neither negative nor illusionary anthropology, to an honest post-theistic understanding of God and eventually to a deeply humanistic understanding of social life.
