Urban Violence and Southern Theory

The book A Southern Criminology of Violence, Youth and Policing examines public experiences of the expansion of punitiveness and insecurity as well as the social impacts of security programmes that claim to address violence. It contributes to the emerging field of Southern Criminology by engaging with the perils faced by people living in “favelas” in Brazil and critically investigating the discourse of state actors. It combines original ethnographic data with critical analysis to expand understandings of violence and control in urban and post-colonial contexts.
