In particular it focuses on: the origins of criminology; criminologys historic and continuing concern to discover the causes of crime; processes of criminalization and why it is that only certain harmful behaviours seem to be subject to criminal sanction; competing rationales for systems of crime control - from deterrence, just deserts and rehabilitation to crime prevention; issues of social control - from the formal processes of the criminal justice to regulation and surveillance in the community; and the future of criminology and its potential for further theoretical development.It is the set book for The Open University course D315 Crime, Order and Social Control.
