The issue of the politics of criminology is a significant theme in academic debate, policy implementation and legal reform. Against administrative criminologists who have been criticized as "technicians of the State" or "apologists for criminal justice", functioning primarily to "manage" the consequences and conflict of structural inequalities in advanced democratic states, this book tries to bring policy back to what it was, a sociological study of the entire social framework of the inequalities of power, wealth and authority which is the result of class relations of industrial society.
