About the Book

Crime is the central focus of criminology and a major topic of the sociology of deviance, but there is no consensus on how to define the term. Many sociologists look at crime as a social contruction, or a label, and look at crime being created through the passing of laws and the application of those laws, a model of the relationship between crime and the resources employed in its detection and punishment by the crimincal justice system. In this model the agents of the criminal justice system (the law makers and law enforcers in particular) are thought to operate like fisheries: they can use nets of varying dimensions or with varying sizes of mesh and the 'net' will determine how much crime is caught. This book provides deep insight into various dimensions of issues relating to the subject.
