Sociology and Criminology

Emerald’s Sociology and Criminology publishing focuses on championing fresh thinking with the potential to reshape research and practice.

Our experienced publishing team work with thought leaders and rising stars from institutions worldwide to produce monographs, book series, and research serials that set the research agenda, and give the very best scholarship reach beyond the academy.

Our Sociology list is growing. As well as our flagship Society Now series, which explores the defining issues of 21st Century society, our newest signings include monograph series on criminology and feminism, digital activism, death studies, mixed-race studies, metal music studies, and deviant leisure.
