Crime and Social Criticism
Ian Taylor discusses radical social theory and the legacy of critical criminology in Europe. In his view, it is vital to undertake this analysis of the new post-Fordist economy in a coldly realistic fashion — paying regard to actual developments such as the post-Fordist labor markets unfolding in North America, Europe, and elsewhere – without anticipating any necessary endpoint, or “revolutionary moment,” in these developments. Indeed, the arrival of a market society organized along post-Fordist lines may have a permanence that could not be claimed by Fordism itself.
