Books Info:

The French Connection in Criminology free pdf This is the first comprehensive, accessible, and integrative overview of postmodernism's contribution to law, criminology, and social justice. The book begins by reviewing the major contributions of eleven prominent figures responsible for the development of French postmodern social theory: This "first" wave includes Roland Barthes, Jean Baudrillard. Helene Cixous, Gilles Delcuze Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Felix Guattari, Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, Jacques Lacan, and Jean-Francois Lyotard. Their respective insights are then linked to "second" wave scholars who have appropriated their conceptualizations and applied them to pressing issues in law, crime, and social justice research. Compelling and concrete examples are provided for how affirmative and integrative postmodern inquiry can function meaningfully in the world of criminal justice.
