Language: French,English . Brand New Book. Attitudes toward crime, criminals, and rehabilitation have shifted considerably, yet the idea that there is a causal link between drug addiction and crime prevails. As law reformers call for addiction treatment as a remedy to the failing war on drugs, it is also time to consider the serious implications of joining legal and therapeutic practices in an assumedly benevolent bid to cure the offender. Drawing on theoretical tools inspired by Foucault, Latour, and Goffman, Criminal Artefacts casts doubt on the assumption that drugs lie at the heart of crime. Case studies from drug treatment courts and addiction treatment programs illustrate the tensions between law and psychology, treatment and punishment, and conflicting theories of addiction. By looking curiously on the criminal addict as an artefact of criminal justice, this book asks us to question why the criminalized drug user has become such a focus of contemporary criminal justice practices. This interdisciplinary book will appeal to students, academics, and practitioners in law, social theory, criminology, criminal justice, addictions, cultural studies, sociology, and science studies.

Synopsis :

Attitudes toward crime, criminals, and rehabilitation have shifted considerably, yet the idea that there is a causal link between drug addiction and crime prevails. As law reformers call for addiction treatment as a remedy to the failing war on drugs, it is also time to consider the serious implications of joining legal and therapeutic practices in an assumedly benevolent bid to cure the offender.Inspired by the works of Foucault, Latour, and Goffman, "Criminal Artefacts" casts doubt on the assumption that drugs lie at the heart of crime. Case studies from drug treatment courts and addiction treatment programs illustrate the tensions between law and psychology, treatment and punishment, and conflicting theories of addiction.This interdisciplinary book will appeal to students, academics, and practitioners in law, social theory, criminology, criminal justice, addictions, cultural studies, sociology, and science studies.

Critique: "Criminal Artefacts is a significant contribution to the fields of the sociology of governance, punishment, and social problems. Moreover, it is a vital contribution to the current political debates regarding the best approaches to deal with the "drug problem"... Her work is original and will stimulate theoretical and political debates on current practices of rehabilitation or treatment in the criminal justice system. - Dany Lacombe, professor of sociology, Simon Fraser University"
