Sociology of Crime, Law and Deviance
The field of radicalization studies, which intersects within the fields of sociology, law, criminology, and criminal justice, focuses particularly on the social dynamics of terrorism from different theoretical, conceptual, and methodological perspectives. It is a fast-growing field in which many areas remain to be explored. 

In Radicalization and Counter-Radicalization, Derek Silva and Mathieu Deflem have gathered an interdisciplinary team of leading experts to make a valuable contribution to the existing literature. This book covers themes such as the notion of risk, security, and surveillance, crime and deviance, gender, political propaganda, media, and cultural representations of radicalization. The volume is divided into theoretical and epistemological interventions aimed at understanding radicalization and counter-radicalization, the historical origins of radicalization, how scholars within the social sciences measure processes and pathways toward radicalization, the policing of, and law enforcement strategies aimed at, combatting radicalization, policy developments in the field of counter-radicalization, and discussions related to the future of radicalization studies within sociology, legal studies, and criminal justice. 

For its breadth and depth of research, this volume of Sociology of Crime, Law and Deviance is essential reading for researchers and students of, law, criminology, and criminal justice.
