Description

"The title of the volumes, 'Images of Crime', rather undersells the richness of what they contain ... Understanding the complexities of crime, even pledges to 'get tough' on the causes, have been side-lined. So the series' commitment to a multi-disciplinary and critical excavation of ideas of crime remains vitally apposite, however much it is a rather quixotic battle against the dominant currents of our time. It is very much to be hoped that the good it did is not interred with the series, but lives after it. I believe that the strength of the scholarly contributions in these volumes will indeed lead to their being referenced and remembered as significant landmarks in critical criminology."

From the Preface (Robert Reiner, Professor of Criminology, London School of Economics)
