Studies in Social Harm

Series Editors: Christina Pantazis, University of Bristol, UK, Simon Pemberton, University of Birmingham, UK and Steve Tombs, The Open University

“This series considers what matters most. Our value system is out of kilter. We imprison people, mostly the poorest, often for committing minor crimes, including not being able to pay back debts. We frequently laud those who can commit the most harm as wealth creators. Now is the right time for a focus on who is harmed most, how and why.” Danny Dorling, University of Oxford

Social harm is an emerging field of study which contributes to contemporary social and political debate. This exciting series moves the debate towards a holistic approach that seeks to understand the production of harm within contemporary society. The topical inter-disciplinary series offers comparative and international perspectives to understand the distribution of harm and combines new theory and empirical research.
