Critical Perspectives in Criminology

Critical Perspectives in Criminology provides a home for monographs and edited collections that re-examine enduring issues related to crime, law, and justice in innovative, provocative, and useful ways. Series titles use the interpretive tools of critical criminology, including feminist discourse, critical race theory, post-structuralism, restorative justice, and critical hermeneutics, to promote the development of criminology as an intellectual approach and to highlight its potential to improve the human social condition.
