About this item

Eglin and Hester’s A Sociology of Crime has an outstanding reputation for its distinctive and systematic contribution to the criminological literature. Through detailed examples and analysis, it shows how crime is a product of processes of criminalisation constituted through language and relationships of power.

In this welcome second edition, the book evaluates the current state of criminalization globally and asks what sociology’s various perspectives have to say about it. It maintains and develops its critical and subversive stance but greatly widens its theoretical range, including dedicated chapters on gender, race and class. It now also provides questions, exercises and further readings alongside its detailed analysis of a new set of contemporary international examples.
