Abstract

Being ‘tough on crime and tough on the causes of crime’ was always more than just a sound bite. Robert Reiner asks; what are the preconditions for a criminal act? And, when so many crimes – including those that go unrecognised by the legal system – go unpunished, how can we distinguish between crime and criminality?
