Congratulations to Professor Robert Reiner who has been awarded the British Society of Criminology Outstanding Achievement Award 2011, reflecting his outstanding contribution to the discipline of Criminology.
From the BSC website:
Professor Robert Reiner is this year’s British Society of Criminology Outstanding Achievement Award winner.
In their nomination, Robert’s nominators – Simon Winlow of the University of York and Steve Hall, Teesside University – said: “Robert’s long and hugely productive career is now drawing to a close, and we believe his contribution to criminology, and to the BSC, fully deserves this recognition. Robert has for many years been one of the most informed and critical commentators of crime and criminal justice. Much of his published work has addressed policing and the politics of crime control, but he is by no means a narrow specialist. His work has spanned many associated fields, and he has consistently displayed a willingness to engage in public debates about crime and policing, while at the same time engaging in more abstract theoretical discussions with his peers and continuing to communicate his passion for criminology to those new to the field”.
Ashgate is delighted to be publishing Robert Reiner’s book Policing, Popular Culture and Economy: Towards a Social Democratic Criminology in September 2011.
