Where’s the Harm? is a Criminology anti-textbook that questions the real sources of a crime - or, more precisely, the real sources of harm. The criminal justice systems that we see in many developed countries are the legacy of centuries of precedent, privilege and prejudice. The result is a corpulent system costing billions of dollars each year and producing, for certain crimes, an accused more than 95 percent likely to walk free. What might we do with a clean slate of thought? What if we rejected the idea of crime and looked instead at the many sources of harm? What if the criminal justice system became a societal justice system where we all understood the probable outcomes and our responsibility for them? This book offers real-world situations, steps away from the idea of punishing antiquated notions of crimes isolated in time and space and challenges the reader to consider the factors contributing to the past, present and future of harm.
