In important respects the 1970s was the foundational moment for the revival of punishment and society as a distinct and productive intellectual field at the intersection of criminology, sociology, political science and history. We can point to multiple intellectual sources of emergence in the decade. In the UK, and the USA British cultural studies (Cohen, 1973; Hall et al.), radical criminologies (Platt, 1977; Taylor et al., 1973) and historians studying crime and society in 18th century England (Hay et al., 1975; Thompson, 1976) all rediscovered Durkheim’s interest in the relationship between crime and social order (Garland, 1990).
