Summary

Offers a new understanding of received notions of crime control through an examination of the historical contexts and associated ideologies that gave rise to specific punishment policies, practices, and reforms in US history. Provides insight into the likely future of crime control, and shows how the larger culture of control extends beyond criminology and impacts on the declining levels of democracy, freedom, and privacy.
