ABOUT THIS BOOK
The notion of social harm is currently being explored as an alternative field of study within criminology, but the definition of social harm, the question of responsibility, and the methodologies for studying harm remain undeveloped. In the first book to theorize and define the social harm concept beyond criminology, Simon Pemberton addresses these omissions and, in doing so, provides a platform for future debates. Using case studies of various international regimes, he analyzes policy responses to different forms of social harm and provides a new typology of countries according to their harm prevention policies.
