Loic Wacquant's writings have shaken the world of criminology - and social science more generally - to their very foundations with a wide-ranging critique of the neo-liberal government of crime and poverty, the shift from the 'welfare' to the 'workfare' and 'penal' states and of the predicament of 'advanced marginality' in late modernity. Wacquant's analyses of the 'pornographic' discourses of law, order and security contaminating democratic politics on a global scale have become a necessary reference point for criminologists and social scientists engaged with the politics of criminalisation and penal policy.;This original book is the first to review and draw on Wacquant's work. It presents a critical but constructive review and development of the challenging work of Loic Wacquant, particularly focusing on the governance of crime and disorder; welfare, change inequality and diswelfare. It concludes with chapter from Professor Wacquant responding to the authors' comments and critiques; The book links his work on the neo-liberal transformation of social policy and therefore fills an important gap in the existing literature which will be exciting reading for academics and students of criminology, social policy and social sciences more broadly.
