Crime, Criminology and Criminal Justice in Scotland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This survey of Scotland reviews: core Scottish criminal justice institutions; statistical trends in crime and punishment over the past forty years; the history and politics of Scottish criminal justice; and the emergence of a distinctively Scottish criminology. In particular, it highlights the cross-cutting modalities of power and identity that have shaped both institutional and policy development and made strong linkages between knowledge and politics.
