In Crime, Robert Reiner offers concise yet insightful commentary on how modern democracies, such as the United Kingdom, understand the concept of crime, arguing moreover that crime can only be properly understood in relation to capitalism. Reiner’s book thus presents criminal justice as a flawed deal that tends to target the marginalised and the oppressed whilst ignoring the crimes of the powerful. Anton Moiseienko praises this as a succinct, compelling and provocative read that draws valued and timely attention to corporate and state crime.
