The new edition provides a timely update of an important book - timely not because its ideas were dated or lacking in relevance, but rather because events of the last decade have confirmed the significance of the arguments advanced in the original edition. Not only has the cultural field been shown to have an increasing importance for criminal justice policy and practice, but criminological theory and research have also demonstrated the complexities of its analysis. The new edition updates the original argument about the importance of cultural analysis for criminology through an expansive array of examples and case studies as well as through a highly thoughtful account of the ways in which criminal justice has always been intertwined with culture. The book also engages closely with related approaches in criminological theory to generate a closely argued account of the significance of culture for criminology

Updating and expanding their path-breaking appreciation of the fundamentally cultural foundations of crime both as law enforcement target and as behavior pursuing the charms of deviance, in their second edition, Ferrell, Hayward and the late Jock Young introduce "cultural criminology" within the long historical sweep of social thought on crime. Their far-reaching and generous appreciation of diverse contributions to the cultural criminology movement is heuristically explosive.  On virtually every page their text will offer the keen reader multiple suggestions for taking research on crime and deviance in novel directions. As criminology faces a crisis of confidence, this rare work shows how a new generation of students can fit promising and practical investigations of crime and deviance under a single comprehensive canopy.
