Synopsis: This book begins with the concept of the ideal state as a single, functioning whole that ensures uniformity in the name of legitimacy. It then goes on to show the many ways that states fall away from the ideal, often because of the actions of the powerful and connected?and the consequences of those failures. Looking at everything from invasions of other nations to consolidated media power, State Crime and Immorality is the first book to draw a clear line between conventional criminality and organized state crime and to directly confront the problem of illegitimate actions among the elite in society and government.

About the Author: Dr Mark Monaghan, Lecturer in Sociology, Social Policy and Crime, University of Leeds Mark Monoghan completed his first degree in Sociology from the University of Liverpool and then went to Leeds in 2004 on a ESRC 1+3 Scheme to undertake postgraduate study. His doctoral research, completed in 2008, centred on the problematic nature of evidence-based policy-making, when applied to heavily politicised areas. This was explored using recent developments in the UK drug classification system as a case study, in particular, the changing status of cannabis therein. Simon Prideaux is Senior Lecturer in Social Policy and Crime at the University of Leeds, he has written widely on social policy and has a growing profile within disability studies. His interests take in comparative access policy, welfare discourses, conditionality and political ideologies. His work tends to be multi-disciplinary. It incorporates social theory, political philosophy and social policy. His primary focus has been on New Labour and the socio-political influences that shape their policy direction.
