This lively and accessible text provides an introduction to the history of crime and crime control. It explains the historical background that is essential for an understanding of contemporary criminal justice, and examines the historical context for contemporary criminological debates.

Topics covered include:

  • Crime statistics
  • Constructions of criminality
  • Policing
  • Prisons
  • Surveillance
  • Governance
  • White-collar crime
  • Immigration and crime
For each topic, the book provides an overview of current research, comment on current arguments and links to wider debates.

The Key Approaches to Criminology series celebrates the removal of traditional barriers between disciplines and, specifically, reflects criminology?s interdisciplinary nature and focus.  It brings together some of the leading scholars working at the intersections of criminology and related subjects.  Each book in the series helps readers to make intellectual connections between criminology and other discourses, and to understand the importance of studying crime and criminal justice within the context of broader debates. 

The series is intended to have appeal across the entire range of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and beyond, comprising books which offer introductions to the fields as well as advancing ideas and knowledge in their subject areas.

"The history spans the ages and covers the statistics and everything from white-collar crime to prisons and explains the changes each has made as time has marched on."
