Antisocial behaviour is becoming a universally accepted problem and one that dominates the political and popular imagination. By providing a new criminological framework for understanding the fear of crime, this book reposes the increasingly important debate around antisocial behaviour and the internationally understood idea of moral panics. Through a critical engagement with theories of risk, the book develops Furedi’s understanding of a Culture of Fear to illustrate how firstly, society today is best understood to be in a permanent state of anxiety, and secondly, how this state of affairs has arisen due to the collapse of traditional politics and morality, and equally, of radical alternatives to it. Central to Waiton's thesis is an explanation of the changing therapeutic relationship between the individual and society based on an understanding of diminished subjectivity and the newly emerged vulnerable public.

About the Author:

Stuart Waiton lectures at the University of Abertay Dundee, Scotland, is a Director of the youth research group Generation Youth Issues, and is a contributor to the Times Education Supplement. He is author of Scared of the Kids? Curfews, crime and the regulation of young people.

Review:

"Waiton has produced a thought-provoking and challenging book; that takes recent criminological debates (such as those around social control, actuarial justice, risk and fear of crime) and resituates them within a wider sociological thesis about the decline of coherent political culture."

- Majid Yar, University of Hull, Crime, Media, Culture

"This is a book packed with sharp and original insights that marks out a significant new line of enquiry for theories of criminal law and criminal justice."

- Peter Ramsay, London School of Economics, Criminology and Criminal Justice

"This work should be widely read. It is an acute analysis that effectively challenges common explanations for what are assumed to be social problems."

- Harris Chaiklin, University of Maryland, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
