Aas (criminology and sociology of law, U. of Oslo, Norway) presents a textbook that explores a host of issues connected to the nexus between globalization and the study of criminology. Among the topics discussed are the impact of global inequality on contemporary crime control strategies and notions of deprivation and social exclusion, global migration as a challenge of control, intensification of border controls in the post-9/11 environment, global tourism's implications for the global sex trade and the governance of security, the impact of global inequality and consumerism on city life and local crime control practices, struggles of the "right to the city," the ghetto and the gated community as examples of spatial exclusion and self-exclusion, discursive linkages between migration and crime, the nature of penal responses against immigrants and asylum seekers, criminological and ethical consequences of the "war on terror," law enforcement responses to transnational organized crime, crime control and the withering of the state, privatization and commodification of crime control and security, and cybercrime and surveillance.
