This highly controversial new book considers how the dangerous offender has become such a figure of collective anxiety for the citizens of rationalised Western societies. The authors consider:* ideas of danger and social threat in historical perspective* legal responses to violent criminals* attempts to predict dangerous behaviour* why particular groups, such as women, remain at risk from violent crime.This inspired collection invites us to rethink the received wisdom on dangerous offenders, and will be of interest to students and scholars in the fields of criminology and the sociology of Risk.
