Title:
Security and Liberty: Restriction by Stealth
Authors:
Moss, Kate
Abstract:
In considering the problems of legislating to reduce crime, this book highlights evidence of the veritable deluge of legislation which has reached the statute books over the last ten years and asks, what are the reasons for this? It provides an overview of some of the ways in which citizens are currently criminalized by legislation and gives specific examples of various other stealthy ways in which essential civil liberties have recently been restricted. Generating new insights on crime reduction this study asks, is legislating to reduce crime really a good idea, or are there better ways of doing it and if so, what are these and why are they better? Why might it be wrong to over-legislate and what sort of societies could be produced from a propensity to over-legislate? CONTENTS: * The Retreat from Liberty * Constitutional Origins of Erosion * The Culture of Control * Detention Without Trial * Football Banning Orders * Secure Borders * Implications for Crime Reduction and Criminology
