Fergus McNeill explores the nature of criminological theory and assesses its practical value to work with offenders. He argues that theory and practice should 'interrogate' one another in each local context, and concludes by offering a series of questions to help criminal justice social work professionals to develop a localised understanding of criminal behaviour and the criminalisation process.
