Voices of Crime

Constructing and Contesting Social Control in Modern Latin America

The University of Arizona Press

Voices of Crime examines how different social groups constructed, contested, navigated, and negotiated notions of crime, criminality, and justice. The authors seek to document and illustrate the everyday experiences of crime in particular settings, emphasizing under-researched historical actors such as criminals, victims, and police officers. The fresh research offers a critical approach to the very definition of crime and its perpetrators, suggesting that “not only the actions of the poor and racial others but also the state can be termed as criminal.”
