Violence Research Centre


"Over the past 20 years, a substantial amount of research has shed light on the historical dynamics of interpersonal violence in Europe and the USA. However, there is a continuing massive gap of good research on the historical dynamics of interpersonal violence in other societies. The present book by three experts on crime and criminal justice in the Asian Region is therefore a very welcome pioneering study."

Prof Eisner believes the book, Violence and the Civilising Process in Cambodia, by Roderic Broadhurst, Thierry Bouhours and Brigitte Bouhours can be of interest to a wide audience, including criminologists, sociologists and historians of violence.

This book review, published in the Asian Journal of Criminology, can be read on this page.
