Summary

This pioneering collection of provocative essays focuses on collective behaviors organized around imagery, style, and symbolic meaning, and considers the ways in which legal and political authorities and the mass media construct these behaviors as criminal. Arguing for the development of a new cultural criminology, the contributors examine a wide range of social and cultural phenomena such as the politics of worldwide urban graffiti and the interplay of skinhead violence and musical style. On the cutting edge of contemporary theory, Cultural Criminology maps directions for further exploration in this emerging synthesis of criminological and cultural studies.
