Description:
Previous edition: 1992.
This text 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 the interactional and organisational use of language. In this welcome second edition, the book reviews and evaluates the current state of criminological theory from this 'grammatical' perspective. It maintains and develops its critical and subversive stance but greatly widens its theoretical range, including dedicated chapters on gender, race, class and the post-als including postcolonialism.
