This chapter examines the values and the value of cultural criminology. It explores the characteristics and criticisms of the diverse range of perspectives, values and theoretical traditions held, and which are maintained by cultural criminologists. Briefly tracing cultural criminology’s lineage, the chapter demonstrates how often the distinct and divergent elements of previous criminology are deployed in a contemporary context. The chapter argues that cultural criminology has yet to construct a unified vision that transcends its constituent theories nor has it sought to develop a contemporary understanding of the structural determinants of crime.
