The Insecurity State

Vulnerable Autonomy and the Right to Security in the Criminal Law

Peter Ramsay

Oxford Monographs on Criminal Law and Justice

  • Offers an original explanatory theory of current trends in criminal law and criminal justice policy
  • Develops a theoretical explanation of the criminal law from a detailed analysis and reconstruction of New Labour's penal policies
  • Explains how preventive criminal laws have arisen from a deficit of political authority rather than from excessive authoritarianism
