The changing face of criminology in Australia and New Zealand (Sage 2021).

As a financial member of ANZSOC, you are entitled to one complimentary copy of the recently-published book, The changing face of criminology in Australia and New Zealand (Sage 2021).

Marking 50 years since the establishment of criminology in Australia and New Zealand, this 294-page book brings together a selection of original articles published in the early years of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology with reviews and commentaries by noted authorities on how these issues of crime and justice have changed over time. The topics covered include crime statistics, criminal law, sentencing, penal policy, alcohol and crime, rape and occupational crime. Added to these are personal reflections on criminology and law reform provided by Justice Christopher Maxwell AC and the late Justice Philip Cummins AM and a Foreword by Professor Duncan Chappell. A current citation analysis is also included along with a ranking of the most influential publications in the journal between 1968 and 2017.
