The approach addresses the social and political context from which each theory emerged, as well as its place within the intellectual development of the discipline. Readers are offered guidance on a close reading of the original texts in the area, many of which are by now seen as classics.

Both academic and popular ideas and images of crime and punishment are discussed. The theories come alive through an elaboration of the place of famous criminals like Al Capone, O.J. Simpson, Patty Hearst and Myra Hindley within the criminological imagination. The book strives to promote critical thought by questioning the role of criminology, as well as the key assumptions of concepts that continue to animate the discipline. In recognition of the interdisciplinary character of criminology, connections are made with relevant scholarship in disciplines such as social theory, cultural theory and jurisprudence.
