"This book problematizes the concept of criminality and its long-standing intimacy with the formation and consolidation of the state and capitalism.... It is a major contribution."

* Asian Journal of Social Science *

"The authors provide a wealth of material that reflects a wide range of analyses from various disciplinary perspectives, very ably supplemented by an editorial introduction that seeks to instill a sense of focus to the whole work."
