Loïc Wacquant’s writings have shaken the world of criminology—and social science more generally—to their foundations with a wide-ranging critique of neoliberal governance’s approach to crime and poverty and its reorientation of state power from welfare to discipline. The first book to fully engage with Wacquant’s work, Criminalisation and Advanced Marginality presents critical but constructive essays on his challenging ideas, focusing on the governance of crime and disorder, welfare, and “diswelfare.” It concludes with Wacquant’s responses to the authors’ comments and critiques.

Review Quotes
Professor Barry Goldson, The University of Liverpool
“Loïc Wacquant is, without question, one of the most significant critical social scientists of the present period. By exposing his work to rigorous analysis and providing Wacquant with a right of reply, Criminalisation and Advanced Marginality comprises a riveting read.”
LSE Review of Books blog

"This volume holds great potential for future research and collaboration. Overall, the overwhelming impression is that the range of disciplinary viewpoints on offer—criminal justice, critical race theory, feminism and welfare studies, amongst others—stands as testament to the immensely varied implications of Wacquant’s work and to the burgeoning development of cross-cutting perspectives in the study of social and penal policy."

Studies in Social Justice
“This volume is to be welcomed as in many ways a refreshing reminder and change of voice.”
