Abstract

This chapter argues for the importance of a postcolonial perspective in criminology. It is a perspective that has the potential to offer new theoretical insights, and to expand the discipline in an engaged and reflexive endeavor that is cognisant of cultural and historical difference.

Keywords: Criminology, Postcolonial Theory
