Item Type: Article
Additional Information: ‘Rehabilitating Leviathan’ is the product of long-term research into the ability of the social democratic state to establish and maintain conditions conducive to reduced levels of interpersonal violence. The article makes a contribution to a new wave of criminological theory currently challenging culturalism and re-assessing the role of the democratic state in the reduction of violent crime. It is cited in Prof. Robert Reiner’s new book Law and Order and in the Oxford Handbook of Criminology as ‘one of the more persuasive arguments in support of the theory that social democracy is the most effective politico-economic platform for violence reduction’.
