Despite great effort and some improvements, criminal justice today still seems like an oxymoron. There are some very good reasons for this feeling: catastrophic failures abound and marginal improvements appear revolutionary. This book addresses the idea of justice in order to guide society toward a more effective justice system. Specifically, the authors argue that justice and love are one and the same thing. They trace impoverished and accomplished thinking in criminological and justice discourses and show that the historic ills that have plagued humanity tend to evaporate when justice and love are understood to be synonyms.

Industry Reviews

Travelers through the criminological and justice landscapes, REJOICE! DeValve has added two new tour guides for our journey through the forest of struggle, love, and justice. The various justice and crime dialogues discussed within the book are woven in a fashion that allows the reader to delve deeply and thoughtfully into philosophical underpinnings of modern criminological discourse while enjoying the view (that being the wonderful, insightful writing and personal musings contained within). In A Unified Theory of Justice and Crime: Justice That Love Gives, DeValve, Garland, and Wright provide readers with insightful and critical assessments of criminological theories while continuing to promote a much-needed paradigm shift for those who research, study, practice, and think about justice and crime in the twenty-first century.
