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.
