Policing the Crisis (PTC) is an intriguing text that flickers hazily in the contested histories of both critical criminology and cultural studies in the UK. For 'the last of the true believers' within critical criminology, it remains the most thorough and sophisticated example of how to use Marxism to theorize the problem of crime. The strength of PTC lies in its hard-edged stance on analysis and prescription and its intellectually eclectic explanatory framework. Not surprisingly, re-reading Hall et al.'s analysis of 'mugging' and the news media in 2007 one realizes how much has altered since 1978.
