Description - Constitutive Criminology by Stuart Henry
This text addresses the increasing polarization between traditional criminological theory and sceptical postmodernism. It seeks to offer a creative approach to understanding and explaining crime by drawing together disparate perspectives towards interdisciplinary integration. The authors develop a "constitutive" theory of crime that integrates insights from both modernist and postmodernist social and criminological theory, to examine the co-production of crime by human subjects and by the social and organizational structures that humans develop. This text aims to deconstruct the traditional discourse of crime and criminal justice, and replace it with a new discourse which offers greater possibilities of preventing recurrence of crime.
