This book sets to explore the key issues and future prospects facing critical criminology, bringing together a set of leading authoriries in the field from the UK, Australasia and the USA. A key concern of the book is to review the possibilities and strategies of pursuing critical criminological scholarship in the context of an increasingly dominant administrative criminology paradigm, reflected in the rise of neo-liberalism, a ""governmentalized"" criminology of risk, crime control and situational crime prevention.
