The ShortCuts series of films Is designed to give teachers and students very brief introductions to / overviews of a range of contemporary sociological ideas through the medium of leading academics.
In this film, Professor Sandra Walklate offers a quick (2-minute) illustrated introduction to the concept of “the criminality of the State”.
Please note that the film contains images that some might classify as “mature” in the sense they depict images associated with both genocide (the holocaust) and terrorism.
The film was previously hosted on YouTube and, despite the “mature” categorisation, Google now insist on an age-verification process that requires you disclosing personal information to them that you might prefer they did not have. For this reason we’ve removed it from their platform and hosted it on our On-Demand pages on Vimeo.
