How did they come to occupy center-stage in the drama played out in public discourse? And how have theories of crime and deviance related to the actual practices of social control and punishment and to the main currents of social conflict? In this book, Dario Melossi addresses these questions, and at the same time offers a survey of the theories of social control, crime, and deviance. Melossi argues that two orientations have always battled within society: one in which the control of crime is paramount, and the other in which controlling crime becomes secondary to the exercise of wider social control.

Conceived and written by a scholar who has been active for many years in Europe and the United States, the text will be an invaluable aid to students and scholars of sociology and criminology on both sides of the Atlantic.
