As the cutting edge of study in law, deviance, and justice move rapidly, Temple University Press continues to publish necessary interventions, urgent voices, and pathbreaking research on the frontier of critical issues. Temple University Press books think broadly, look forward, and set agendas within their disciplines.

The Press is especially excited to announce our new book series Temple Studies in Criminalization, History, and Society series, edited by Baris Cayli Messina, aims to promote greater understanding of criminalization and its various patterns at the local, national, and global levels throughout modern and contemporary history across theoretical and methodological boundaries.
