Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Crime and Criminal Justice in Disaster aims to answer two questions: Why do some people take advantage of the disruption that disaster causes to commit crime, and what can be done about it?

The third edition of Crime and Criminal Justice in Disaster includes a complete updating of the chapters from the second edition and focuses on crime in the wake of recent disasters, including Hurricane Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan and the Ferguson riots. The authors of the essays in this volume, all talented sociologists, criminologists and law enforcement officials who have had direct experience researching and working in disaster conditions, have updated their original work to investigate the long-term effects that disaster can have on crimes such as rape, fraud, looting, domestic violence, hate crimes and even homicide. They have also worked to explain the actions criminal justice and other systems can take in the short and long-term disaster aftermaths to combat and prevent crime. The revisions to the third edition of Crime and Criminal Justice in Disaster help bring us closer to a criminology of disaster and set the stage for new theorizing and research that can help us more fully understand the criminogenic effects of disaster and the best practices for criminal justice and other systems in preventing these effects.
