Office Hours Summer 2014By appointment
I have taught sociology and criminology in England, Ireland and the U.S., where I am currently Professor of Criminology and Legal Studies at the University of Southern Maine. Despite trying quite hard, I play the fiddle very badly.
At U.S.M I teach courses on Introduction to Criminology (CRM100); Animal Abuse (CRM 327/SOC 380); and Comparative Criminology (CRM 401).
PH.D in sociology from Durham University, England
My recent books include Issues in Green Criminology (2007, edited with Nigel South, Willan Publishing) and an edited 6-volume reprint series, The Chicago School of Criminology 1914-1945 (2006, Routledge), Confronting Animal Abuse (2009, Roman & Littlefield), and Criminology: A Sociological Approach (2011, with James W. Messerschmidt, Oxford University Press). Other publications include Fair Rent and Legal Fiction (1977, The Macmillan Press), Inventing Criminology: Essays on the Rise of 'Homo Criminalis' (1993, SUNY Press), Marxism and Law (1982, with Richard Quinney, John Wiley & Sons), Issues in Comparative Criminology (1997, with David Nelken, Dartmouth Publishig Company), The Origins and Growth of Criminology (1994, Dartmouth Publishing Company).
