ABOUT THIS BOOK
Loïc Wacquant’s writings have shaken the world of criminology—and social science more generally—to their foundations with a wide-ranging critique of neoliberal governance’s approach to crime and poverty and its reorientation of state power from welfare to discipline. The first book to fully engage with Wacquant’s work, Criminalisation and Advanced Marginality presents critical but constructive essays on his challenging ideas, focusing on the governance of crime and disorder, welfare, and “diswelfare.” It concludes with Wacquant’s responses to the authors’ comments and critiques.
