Abstract:

Tthis unique collection, focussing on invisible crimes, social harms and victimisations represents forms a critical perspective on the continuing invisibility of much crime and victimisation in the UK and overseas.and offers new insight into methodologies capable of examining it. Within its pages, The volume explores the various ''spaces'' of invisibility - the body, home, street, environment, state and virtual world -- to develop a framework of typological underpinnings applicable to a range of crimes and harms that tend to remain obscured or hidden through various examples and case studies. It examines the broader reasons for the relative invisibility of some crimes and social harms and how various victims and injustices have become more visible or rendered less so over time and place. This volume revisits and elaborates upon the 'seven features of invisibility' that were introduced in the acclaimed earlier text, Invisible Crimes (1999), and aligns this with current knowledge and research. This fully revised collection, with six new chapters, shapes the lens through which the study and knowledge of criminology and victimology is approached in the twenty-first century. It will be a vital resource for scholars to think critically about research, theory, and policy and practice in relation to the nature and types of invisible crimes at individual and institutional levels.
