Douglas Dallier
Location: Okinawa
Dr. Dallier earned his Doctoral degree from The Florida State University College of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and has published articles on topics such as state corporate crime, the concept of falsifiability, right-wing authoritarianism, Southern chain gangs, political prisoners, drugs, police states and dictatorship. His previous research activities include work on national-level studies concerning attitudes towards capital punishment, the relationship between age and crime, and he has recently finished a draft of his book examining the organizational dynamics involved in facilitating the Holocaust. In addition to these activities, Dr. Dallier served as principle archivist for Sir Leon Radzinowicz, the late Cambridge professor credited with being the first criminologist in the English speaking world who, amongst many accomplishments authored the authoritative five volume set on the History of English Criminal Law. Some of Dr. Dallier's work in this capacity would go on to have a small role in assisting The International Criminal Court in the successful prosecution of former Yugoslavian president Slobodan Milosevic for war crimes. Dr. Dallier's areas of interest include crimes against humanity, epistemology and research methodology, classical sociological theory, the historical evolution of criminal justice practices, criminal justice ethics, and the evolution of thought on the etiology of deviant and criminal behavior. Dr. Dallier's current research concerns the cross-national comparability of Japanese crime statistics. Known by students for his creative pedagogy and epistemologically avant-garde style of lecture, he has previously taught at The Florida State University, Western Carolina University, and currently serves as collegiate faculty within the University of Maryland University College's Asian division, where he teaches courses in sociology and theoretical criminology on the island of Okinawa, Japan.
