Critical Criminology of Leisure

Theory, Methodology and a Case Study

By Stratos Georgoulas

Critical Criminology of Leisure aims to play the role of an introductory essay, of a concise guide for the theoretical study and research on a social field which emerges as the point of intersection of two established scientific subjects: leisure and crime. The concept of 'leisure' is used as a methodological tool, as privileged social time for the study of the social problems of modern societies and more specifically for the study of the issue of criminalization or the forms of action (or inactivity) of formal social control agents and the legitimization of this action by the public.
