This book presents the work of a new generation of critical criminologists who explore the geographical, institutional, and political contexts of the discipline in Canada. Breaking away from mainstream criminology and law-and-order discourses, the authors offer a spectrum of theoretical approaches to criminal justice - from governmentality to feminist criminology, from critical realism to anarchism - and they propose novel approaches to topics ranging from genocide to white-collar crime. By posing crucial questions and attempting to define what criminology should be, this book will shape debates about crime, policing, and punishment for years to come.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is an original, thought-provoking book, one that provokes interchange and debates across the different, sometimes isolated, always contentious fragments that make up the criminological enterprise today. The uniqueness of Canadian critical criminology is recognized and celebrated, but the book is never parochial -- it contributes theoretically and often substantively to every major issue.
- Laureen Snider, Professor Emerita, Department of Sociology, Queen's University
