Changing Contours of Criminal Justice is an edited collection of essays designed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Oxford Centre for Criminology by exploring the changing contours of criminal justice over the past half century. The contributors to this volume were invited to reflect on the impact Oxford criminology has had on the discipline, providing a unique and critical discussion about the current state of criminal justice around the world and the origins and future implications of contemporary practice. All are internationally-renowned criminologists whose work has defined and often re-defined our understanding of criminal justice policy and literature.
