This handbook sets out, defines, and analyzes the essential vocabulary and terminology involved in the study of state power, individual liberties, and rights. As part of the Companions series, it is organized alphabetically, taking up and defining key topics in these areas, particularly as they relate to the study of crime and harm. Topics addressed include state and corporate crime, terrorism, security, risk, legislation and policy, human rights and civil liberties, policing, punishments and detention, surveillance and regulation, and many others. Accessible yet challenging, the book will be useful for both undergraduates and graduate students working in criminology, criminal justice, international relations, political science, and other fields.
