Criminalisation and Criminal Responsibility in Australia brings together significant contributions across the two major axes structuring criminal law scholarly thinking and criminal law scholarship in the current era – criminalisation and criminal responsibility. The contributions to this collection have been written by some of Australia’s leading criminal law and procedure scholars and canvass the law in all the states and territories in Australia. As such, the collection provides a snapshot of key issues apparent across the Australian criminal justice landscape, and showcases up-to-date critical scholarly analysis of these issues.

Reviews

"This impressive book adds wonderfully to the growing number of scholarly works on current Australian criminal justice practice. It brings together in one volume the most up to date research on criminalisation and criminal responsibility from a range of social, cultural and political perspectives. Policy-makers concerned with shaping the future of Australian criminal law well into the 21st century will need this book on their shelves."


Rick Sarre, Professor in the School of Law at University of South Australia and President of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology


"Thomas Crofts and Arlie Loughnan have brought together a group of both established and next wave criminal law scholars to explore two main questions: when should the state use the criminal law to regulate behaviour and who should be held accountable for criminal actions? This collection provides much needed contextual and/or historical perspectives on offences that are under-explored such as public order crimes, summary offences and the possession and use of cannabis as well as new technology-related offences including sexting, complicity in cyberspace, webcam child sex tourism and using mobile devices while driving. It is a must-read for all those interested in theories and policies of criminalisation and criminal responsibility."
