Series: Routledge Library Editions: Criminology
Originally published in 1997. This excellent text first presents postmodern analysis as an integration of discourse analysis and chaos, topology, critical, feminist, and constitutive theory. It then applies it to criminology and law in terms of jailhouse lawyers and lawyering. This important work contributes to the big discussion among criminologists about the postmodern aspects of crime.
