Almost every story of maternal infanticide starts with “the baby wouldn’t stop crying”. But the story is more than just bad or mentally ill mothers who lethally assault their baby. The story is about how hard it is to be a good mother in a society where women are expected to raise their children in their spare time and with their spare change. This book examines the social, economic and cultural conditions and stressors under which mothers commit infanticide, and shows how these conditions affect the ability to meet societal and self-perceived expectations of “good” mothering..

Criminologies of the Military
Militarism, National Security and Justice
Edited by Andrew Goldsmith and Ben Wadham
This innovative collection offers one of the first analyses of criminologies of the military from an interdisciplinary perspective. While some criminologists have examined the military in relation to the area of war crimes, this collection considers a range of other important but less explored aspects such as private military actors, insurgents, paramilitary groups and the role of military forces in tackling transnational crime. Drawing upon insights from criminology, this book’s editors also consider the ways the military institution harbours criminal activity within its ranks and deals with prisoners of war. The contributions, by leading experts in the field, have a broad reach and take a truly global approach to the subject.
Ben Wadham is Associate Professor of Sociology, Flinders University, Australia.
Andrew Goldsmith is Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor of Criminology and Director of the Centre for Crime Policy & Research, Flinders University, Australia.

Bristol University Press 2018 Criminology flyer (pdf download)
New Horizons in Criminology provides concise authoritative texts in criminology which reflect cutting edge thought and theoretical development with an international scope. Divided into eight chapters, these short accessible texts are written so that the non-specialist academic, student or practitioner can understand them by explaining principles and developments clearly before going deeper into the subject.
Written by leading authors in their fields, the series aims to become essential reading for all academics and students (and practitioners) interested in where criminology is heading.
50 facts everyone should know about crime and punishment in Britain invites us to reflect on just how inadequately crime and punishment are explained if we fall into the trap of being seduced by narratives. The wonderful criticality here serves as a superb resource for students and scholars, but also for a much wider audience of people fascinated by the subject of crime and society.
Their latest and most popular titles in criminology are included in this Criminology flyer.
