(The work Chaohybrids: Five Uneasy Peaces represents five ...)
The work Chaohybrids: Five Uneasy Peaces represents five essays, drawing inspiration from various theoretical strands and contemplating the ambivalence of contemporary life. Lippens uses psycho-geographical imagery as a metaphor for this life, utilizing this motif in a postmodern literary style, which shakes the reader's preconceived notions from them. Theories touched upon throughout the book include postcolonial thought, poststructuralism, cultural studies, and radical democratic theory.
(Imaginary Boundaries of Justice explores the issue of how...)
Imaginary Boundaries of Justice explores the issue of how the Imaginary has a role in the production and reproduction of 'visions' of legal and social justice.
(Existentialist Criminology captures an emerging interest ...)
Existentialist Criminology captures an emerging interest in the value of existentialist thought and concepts for criminological work on crime, deviance, crime control, and criminal justice. Covering a range of topics that lend themselves quite naturally to existentialist analysis - crime and deviance as becoming and will, the existential openness of symbolic exchange, the internal conversations that take place within criminal justice practices, and the contingent and finite character of resistance - the contributions to this volume set out to explore a largely untapped reservoir of critical potential.
(This is the book that criminology students have been wait...)
This is the book that criminology students have been waiting for. Written in a lively and conversational style, it introduces and familiarizes students with a set of basic notions that are essential to the study of crime and its control. The book explores the interplay between philosophical and criminological theories to provide a stimulating and insightful overview of the subject.
(Criminology, by its very nature as a non-disciplinary fie...)
Criminology, by its very nature as a non-disciplinary field of research and scholarship, has always relied on theoretical perspectives, derived from external disciplines and bodies of literature, for its constant renewal. The editors of New Directions for Criminology chose to consult scholars from outside the criminological community to demonstrate how the latest theoretical work in their field can be made fruitful for criminology. All contributors are familiar with the fundamentals of criminological theories and research, and all are well placed to clearly make the connections between the cutting edge of their field of research and its potential for criminology.
(Representing the Experience of War and Atrocity explores ...)
Representing the Experience of War and Atrocity explores how the experience of war and related atrocities tend to be visually expressed and how such articulations and representations are circulated and consumed. Topics include the destruction of war in oppositional cultural forms - comparing the Nazi period with the ISIS destruction of Palmyra - and the visual aesthetics of violence deployed by Jihadi terrorism. The contributors are a multi-disciplinary team drawn mainly from criminology but also sociology, international relations, gender studies, English, and the visual arts.

Quotations: "I have come to realize that we are damned if we do, and damned if we don't. Try to be a nihilist these days, I often sigh. Even that will prove to be an unattainable - an impossible - goal. But then, this is what keeps me going and writing."
Ronnie Lippens married Kathleen Vandenberghe in 1985.
