This collection of essays explores the thesis of "the risk society". Broadly speaking, risk society is understood as a society which is organized in important ways around the concept of risk, and which increasingly governs its problems in terms of discourses and technologies of risk. The first set of essays deal with broad attempts to theorize the rise of risk society, with particular reference to crime and control. Jonathan Simon's paper sets out a general, broadly Foucaultian, thesis about the emergence of "the risk society" out of the disciplinary society. Section two moves away from generally broad ranging attempts to delineate and account for the nexus between crime control and risk society and focuses more specifically on the processes of policing. The third section of the collection begins with a paper that brought the issues of actuarialist crime control and risk managerial criminology to the attention of most criminologists. In the final section, the multiple oppositions and resistances to actuarial justice are addressed, in part as a means to emphasize that the concept of risk society should not be read as implying an automatic or total investment of criminal justice by actuarial logics and techniques.
