Developed by Bruno Latour and his collaborators, actor-network theory (ANT) offers crimes studies a worthy intellectual challenge. It requires us to take the performativity turn, consider the role of objects in our analysis and conceptualize all actants (human and non-human) as relational beings. Thus power is not the property of one party, but rather it is an effect of the relationships among actants. This innovative collection provides a series of empirical and theoretical contributions that shows: c The importance of conceptualizing and analyzing technologies as crucial actants in crime and crime control. c The many facets of ANT: its various uses, its theoretical blending with other approaches, its methodological implications for the field. c The fruitfulness of ANT for studying technologies and crime studies: its potential and limitations for understanding the world and revamping crime studies research goals. Students, academics and policy-makers will benefit from reading this collection in order to explore criminology-related topics in a different way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The editors and authors succeeded in providing manifold accounts of ANT and demonstrated its value not only theoretically but also empirically. My personal view on what ANT has to offer for criminology is quite well represented in the book: the active treatment of non-humans, the relational and networked nature of the social and the critical/ constructionist lens, which lets us reflect upon the object of study (crime), the criminological researcher and criminology as a science... Finally, I am convinced that the book will inspire many criminologists as well as opening up the road to more criminological ANT-based studies."
Wytske van der Wagen, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books, May 2016
