This volume brings together key articles in the burgeoning field of regulation. The collection is interdisciplinary, in keeping with study of regulation itself, yet the book arranges and explores these articles to make the bewildering array of issues and concepts that comprise the study of regulation comprehensible to a criminological audience. It will be of interest to all scholars and students of criminology and criminal justice, as well as those concerned with reducing the crimes and harms of the powerful.
