About this product
- DescriptionCrimilogy is a booming discipline, yet one which can appear divided and fractious. In this rich and diverse collection of essays, some of the world's leading crimilogists respond to a series of questions designed to investigate the state, impact, and future challenges of the discipline: What is crimilogy for? What is the impact of crimilogy? How should crimilogy be done? What are the key issues and debates in crimilogy today? What challenges does the discipline of crimilogy face? How has crimilogy as a discipline changed over the last few decades? The resulting essays identify a series of intellectual, methodological, and ideological borders. Borders, in crimilogy as elsewhere, are policed, yet they are also frequently transgressed; crimilogists can and do move across them to plunder, admire, or learn from other regions. While some boundaries may be more difficult or dangerous to cross than others it is rare to find an entirely secluded locale or community. In traversing ideological, political, geographical, and disciplinary borders, crimilogists bring training, tools, and concepts, as well as key texts to share with foreigners. From such exchanges, over time, borders may break down, shift, or spring up, enriching those who take the journey and those who are visited. It is, in other words, in crimilogy's capacity for and commitment to reflexivity, on which the strength of the field depends.
