    the use of force in Operation Kratos that led to the tragic shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes Concerns about the use of excessive force however are not confined to the terrorist situation The essays in this collection examine how the state sanctions the use of lethal force in varied ways through the doctrines of public and private self defence and the development of legislation and case law that excuses or justifies the use of lethal force in the course of executing an arrest preventing crime or disorder or protecting private property An important theme is how the domestic and international legal orders intersect and continually influence one another While legal approaches to the use of lethal force share common features the context within which force is deployed varies greatly Key issues explored in this volume are the extent to which domestic and international law authorise pre emptive use of force and how necessity and reasonableness are legally constructed in this context Simon Bronitt is Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security at Griffith University in Brisbane His research interests include criminal justice issues including counter terrorism law and human rights covert policing telecommunications interception and

    International Institute for the Sociology of Law O ati Spain in 2010 explores the potential legal and criminological consequences of climate change both domestically and for the international community A novel feature of the book is the consideration given to the potential synergies between the two disciplinary foci thus to encourage among legal scholars and criminologists not only an analysis of the consequences of climate change from these perspectives but to bring these fields together to provide a unique inter disciplinary exploration of the ways in which climate change does or could impact on our societies Such an inter disciplinary approach is necessary given that climate change is a multifaceted phenomenon and one which is intimately linked across disciplines To study this topic from the point of view of a single social science discipline restricts our understanding of the societal consequences of climate change It is hoped that this edited collection will identify emerging areas of concern illuminate areas for further research and most of all encourage future academic discussion on this most critical of issues Stephen Farrall is Professor of Criminology at the University of Sheffield Tawhida Ahmed is a Lecturer at the School of Law at the University

    major preoccupation of citizens and politicians and highly emotionalised public discourses on crime and justice But how can we best make sense of these developments Do we need to create emotionally intelligent justice systems or are we messing recklessly with the rational foundations of liberal criminal justice This volume brings together leading criminologists and sociologists from across the world in a much needed conversation about how to re calibrate reason and emotion in crime and justice today The contributions range from the micro analysis of emotions in violent encounters to the paradoxes and tensions that arise from the emotionalisation of criminal justice in the public sphere They explore the emotional labour of workers in police and penal institutions the justice experiences of victims and offenders and the role of vengeance forgiveness and regret in the aftermath of violence and conflict resolution The result is a set of original essays which offer a fresh and timely perspective on problems of crime and justice in contemporary liberal democracies Susanne Karstedt is Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies School of Law University of Leeds Ian Loader is Professor of Criminology and Director of the Centre for
