Since the publication of Michele Alexander's The New Jim Crow books on the criminal justice system have proliferated. In distinction from most of those often excellent investigative reports and analyses of the contemporary moment, this title attempts to sketch a history of crime and punishment's role in the development of capitalist society on explicitly Marxist terms. Title will benefit from the growing academic audience for the book series of which it is a part Peer reviewed nature of the book series provides an inbuilt credibility to other academics working within the field.

"[This] path-breaking book compels us to revisit the insights of Marx and Engels and she challenges the dated, but often stated, claim made by orthodox Marxists (e.g., Hirst, 1975) that Marxist theory cannot be applied to the study of crime and law. Vegh Weis demonstrates that nothing can be further from the truth. As well, throughout her book, she contests the frequently cited declarations that Marx and Engels had very little to say about crime and that the sociology of law was little more than a secondary interest to them." -Walter S. DeKeseredy, Punishment & Society, "Marxism and Criminology is an excellent contribution to renew the debate on the causes of the growing demand for punitiviness and, at the same time, a questioning of the legal field auto-perception as emancipated from the conditions of production and reproduction of the life and the world." -Jorge Elbaum, Delito y Sociedad, Santa Fe, 2018. "[C]ertainly since Rusche and Kirchheimer and Foucault, we have an attempt at a general synthesis which brings together a vast range of empirical material on the dimensions of criminalisation which is then theorised in terms of a clearly articulated relationship to the central dynamic of capitalist development. The contribution of this book to the development of Marxist criminology and, reciprocally, criminologically-sensitive Marxism, is immense. If we want to understand where the world is heading, and the urgency of reform, then this is precisely the type of contribution we need." -Jhon Lea, The British Journal of Criminology "Valeria Vegh retakes, many decades later, the fundamental statements of Punishment and Social Structure by Rusche and Kirchheimer and goes beyond the strict consideration of the labor market to delve into the complex social and economic relations under which criminal demonstrations contemporarily take place [...] it is a real pleasure to present an investigation of the rigorousness that Valeria Vegh's work possesses. I hope that it has a long journey." -Inaki Rivera Beiras, Critica Penal y Poder
