Commentators have long debated what is meant by the moral in ideas about moral panic, moral regulation, and moral discourse. This concise but rigorous book teases out some of the fundamental moral questions that continue to perplex us—questions of life and death, good and evil, and sex and the body. With an appraisal of the work of one of the chief architects of the notion of moral panic, Jock Young, Moral Regulation asks whether this concept helps or hinders our understanding of such complex conundrums.
