Partners In Health, Partners In Crime
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Criminology and medical sociology have developed largely independently of one another, despite a shared interest in questions of authority, expertise, social control, legitimacy, and credibility. This book crosses the divide, bringing together essays on the border between crime and health care. The region between the two fields is populated by, amongst others, forensic health care providers who interpret evidence and provide expert testimony in courts; law enforcement agents incarcerating populations with unmet mental health needs; and policy makers opting for punitive or treatment oriented policies. In considering the work of these professionals, the contributors to this volume map out the medical component of crime and the legal status of medicine.
