Review:

This book is a wonderful collection of imaginative work by people sensitively in touch with the co-production of crime and punishment. I think the strength of the field is reflected in the variety of first-rate work this volume has attracted. Hal Pepinsky, Indiana University
This book argues that constitutive criminology can ultimately help society out of its obsession with the crime and punishment cycle. Based on applications and empirical research within the theoretical framework first presented in the editors earlier volume, Constitutive Criminology: Beyond Postmodernism, this new book brings together scholars and practitioners who have applied constitutive theory to specific areas of crime and justice practice. It extends development of the constitutive project by drawing together studies that found constitutive theory helpful in understanding distinct problems in the applied world of crime and justice."
