The New Criminology: For a Social Theory of Deviance
'The New Criminology' was written at a particular time and place; it was a product of 1968 and its aftermath: a world turned upside down. It was a time of great changes in personal politics and a surge of politics on the left: Marxism, Anarchism, Situationism as well as radical social democratic ideas became centre stage.
