Description - Critical Criminology by Rene Van Swaaningen
This text places central themes from the politics of law and order - such as crime prevention, safety and the position of the victim - in a framework of social justice and demonstrates that critical criminological theories have an important role to play in the future shaping of the field. Providing the reader with a comprehensive historical and contemporary analysis of critical criminology throughout Europe, the author argues that critical criminological theories can be re-assessed and re-applied in the light of trends within the fields of criminology and criminal justice.
