We live in a society that is increasingly preoccupied with allocating blame: when something goes wrong someone must be to blame. Bringing together philosophical, psychological, and sociological accounts of blame, this is the first detailed criminological account of the role of blame in which the authors present a novel study of the legal process of blame attribution, set in the context of criminalisation as a social and political process. This timely and topical book will be essential reading for anyone working or researching in the criminal justice field. It will also be of wider interest to anyone wishing to discover the role of blame in modern society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Blame, and its relation to criminalisation, have been neglected in criminal justice studies. Drawing on legal philosophy, this book puts them firmly under the spotlight of a thorough multi-disciplinary interrogation." Professor Colin Sumner, University College Cork
"A much-needed critical review of the role and parameters of 'blame' within criminal regulation. Accessibly written and insightful in its analyses throughout, this book compels a re-evaluation of our attributions and tactics of blaming in 21st century criminal justice policy." Professor Vanessa Munro, University of Nottingham
"This thought provoking book....is a very welcome addition to reading lists in criminology and criminal justice." Criminology & Criminal Justice
