Abstract The criminal attacks that occurred in the U.S. on September 11, 2001, have profoundly altered and reshaped the priorities of criminal justice systems around the world. Domestic criminal law has become a vehicle for criminalizing 'new' terrorist offenses and other transnational forms of criminality. 'Preventative' detention regimes have come to the fore, balancing the scales in favor of security rather than individual liberty. These moves complement already existing shifts in criminal justice policies and ideologies brought about by adjusting to globalization, economic neo-liberalism, and the shift away from the post-war liberal welfare settlement. In Regulating Deviance, a collection of essays focuses on the future directions for the criminal law in the light of current concerns with state security and regulating 'deviant' behavior. The contributions come from leading scholars in the fields of criminal law and procedure, criminology, legal history, law and psychology, and the sociology of law.
