It is a common perception that violent crime is on the increase and social surveys record a growing fear of victimization among the public. Yet not all violence is criminalized, and much criminal violence still goes unreported.
"Punishing Violence" examines the series of decisions--by victims, police officers, prosecutors and the courts--which determine whether or not violent behavior is criminalized.
Based on their own innovative research, Antonia Cretney and Gwynn Davis examine the relationships underpinning violence, the reasons for violent acts and the factors militating against successful court prosecutions. In doing so, they provide an authoritative account of the reality of assault and identify a serious dislocation between the purposes of victims and the purposes of the justice system in the treatment of violent crime.

Industry Reviews

[The authors] provide a real and thought-provoking account of the reality of assault and identify a serious gap between the purposes of victims and the purposes of the justice system in responding to violent crime.
