About this book
Conceived and written by a scholar who has been active for many years both in Europe and the United States, the text will be an invaluable aid to advanced students and scholars of sociology and criminology on both sides of the Atlantic.
Written by one of criminology's few internationally-recognised figures. Has potential to be a classic, "must-read" text, offering a sweeping overview of anxieties about crime in Europe and the US and the public and political responses to them. Clear linear development through history from the Renaissance to today.
