Review quote

Critical criminology, so vital during an era of political backlash, is re-imagined in this wide ranging set of essays. Cutting edge issues from hate crime, mass incarceration and the new penology, and rural crime are presented along side of more established and important considerations such as the future of left realism some twenty years out and a critical perspective on the causes of violence. -- Meda Chesney-Lind, University of Hawaii at Manoa ...most helpful...

Rich in scholarship and diverse in perspective, the selections illuminate how the criminal enterprise is intimately shaped by power, culture, and injustice. This volume is essential reading for scholars and their students not afraid to challenge conventional criminological assumptions and to envision crime and its control in fresh ways. -- Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, University of Cincinnatishow more
