Why does so much crime and victimisation remain invisible and what can be done about it? This is the central tenet of Invisible Crimes and Social Harms, a ground-breaking new collection of chapters, in the Palgrave Macmillan series Critical Criminological Perspectives.

Invisible Crimes and Social Harms explores the reasons for the continuing invisibility of much crime and harm and the lack of adequate response, explains how various injustices have become more visible or rendered less so over time and place, and explores what can be done to connect the intellectual with the search for social justice and social policy. Within its pages, this compelling volume explores the various 'spaces' of invisibility – the body,  home, street, environment, institution and the state– through a wide range of fascinating case studies and examples, to develop a radical criminological framework of typological underpinnings
applicable to a range of crimes and harms that tend to remain obscured or hidden.

This book is an essential resource for lecturers, researchers, students and practitioners of criminology and criminal justice, as well as for everyone interested in debates about crime, harm and social justice.
