About this title


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:

Mark Monaghan is a lecturer in sociology, social policy, and crime at the University of Leeds, where Simon Prideaux is associate professor of social policy, disability, and crime.
