Nigel Fielding’s research focus is in criminal justice, especially policing. Professor Fielding was a founding member of the Socio-Legal Studies Association and Editor of the Howard Journal of Criminal Justice from 1985 to 1998, on whose editorial board he still serves, along with that of Policing and Society. He has published 10 books in the field. His Police and Social Conflict is in its second edition, his study Courting Violence won the ‘best book’ prize of the Socio-Legal Studies Association and the ‘Mafia as a business’ section of his edited book Economic Dimensions of Crime was reviewed as transforming the field’s understanding of syndicated and organised crime.
