درباره این کتاب:
Theory compels us to act. At first blush, this statement may sound odd, perhaps even counter-intuitive. But the plain truth is that theory construction (including the antecedent assumptions that inform it) is an invitation to be otherwise and to do differently. But being and doing are situated exploits. And, as such, the actions to which we are directed by way of our constructed theory – including the relationship between the concepts that constitute the theory’s internal elements – are always and already social in composition and, correspondingly, perspectival in their effects. This logic obtains with respect to the physical and social sciences in general and to criminology in particular. Thus, theory is not a tool for generating categorical truths or providing absolute certainty; rather, it is a typification or metaphor for how we make sense of the life-worlds that we inhabit and the social persons that construct them, however incomplete, fragmented, or circumscribed both of these may be. An example here is warranted.
