Summary
"This book is a wide-ranging account of the relationship between the development of a 'free market society' in Europe and North America and the fears and anxieties provoked by crime. It offers an evaluation of the theoretical schools in social theory and in criminology which continue to dominate the academy, but whose purchase on contemporary realities is everywhere slipping." "A major new work by one of the leading scholars in the field, this book will be essential reading for students in criminology, urban studies, social policy and sociology."--Jacket
