Summary
  • This timely book provides a theoretical and empirical engagement with contemporary understandings of the governance of crime, safety and security. Using a Bourdieuian framework, Bowden explores concepts such as capital, habitus and symbolic power to present an analytic tool-kit for a critically engaged public criminology.
  • 'Matthew Bowden's book Crime, Disorder and Symbolic Violence represents a theoretically innovative, research-based contribution to the nascent body of sociological work on plural policing and the often hybrid forms of governing the urban periphery and in particular of young people in these supposed 'neo-liberal' times. Drawing on both Bourdieuian theoretical insights and a broadly realist conceptual framing, Bowden offers a compelling case study of Dublin's own 'urban periphery' and its contested youth governance. The book adds to the growing reputation of critical criminological scholarship in Ireland. The analysis presented and its broader policy and policy implications will also interest and engage advanced students and researchers throughout the international field of sociological criminology.' - Professor Gordon Hughes, Chair in Criminology, Cardiff University

Summary expansion
This timely book provides a theoretical and empirical engagement with contemporary understandings of the governance of crime, safety and security. In the last two decades, criminological narratives have advanced a series of propositions on the nature of the late modern risk society. These narratives have based their observations primarily upon trends in the core, developed societies. This book presents an alternative perspective, exploring the nuances of the smaller scale and offering a rich insight into the historical and spatial specifics leading to the emergence of social crime prevention as a form of governing. Using a Bourdieuian framework, Bowden shows how concepts such as capital, habitus and symbolic power can provide an analytic tool-kit for a critically engaged public criminology. This book argues that crime prevention can mobilise a type of moral curriculum and as such is a symbolic struggle for the domination of the subject and the domination of territory. Revealing a counter-practice which has the ability to reinvigorate social citizenship, this book will appeal to scholars across Criminology, Sociology, Crime Prevention and Community Safety
