SYNOPSIS 

Radicalization, generally understood as a process whereby individuals or groups shift away from conventional or status quo political, religious, or otherwise ideological thoughts, views, and behaviors toward violence, has received increasing media, political, and academic consideration. This volume explores the scholarship on radicalization as a criminalized space and counter-radicalization as a mechanism through which that space is controlled, as increasingly influential practices that affect our daily lives. Themes covered in this volume include notions of risk, security, and surveillance, crime and deviance, gender, social psychology, policing, private security, prison radicalization, terrorist organization and disengagement, narratives and counter-narratives, political propaganda, media, and cultural representations of radicalization.

This volume is published in the series, Sociology of Crime, Law and Deviance.
