The Futures of Criminology
SAGE Publications, Nov 11, 1994 - Social Science - 250 pages
Taking stock of exciting recent developments in criminology, this book sets it in the context of contemporary intellectual debates. Distinguished international criminologists present a critical survey of the theoretical accomplishments of the field and their viability for the future, with proposals to change ways of analyzing current developments in crime and crime control. The wide-ranging discussions are fundamental to the re-examination of criminology. They include the limits of criminology's ability to be reflexive; the reasons for criminology's fragmentation; the encounter between criminology and postmodernism; the emergence of actuarial justice; and the insights to be gained from comparative criminology.
