The Deviance of the Zookeepers

The question, then, is: what is the ‘world of critical criminology’ represented in the three chosen texts and is the particular synthesis of ‘theory’ and ‘world’ (the representational and constitutive) ‘critical’ in the Gouldnerian sense? If we apply Gouldner’s injunctions in the strictest terms and attend to the postulated architecture of that world as a whole then the answer must be no, or not yet. No criminology that truncates historical experience and the historical process into such short time-frames can be understood as critical in Gouldner’s sense of that term. This is not because the history is inadequate (even though, in too many instances, it is inadequate – especially in the overdrawn contrast between the present and the so-called ‘Golden Age’). It is because such an accounting procedure fails to recognise itself as part of the crisis of sociology that Gouldner had exposed. Its consequence, in Gouldner’s (1970: 390) terms, is to fix ‘perspective in aesthetic standards, in the appearance of things’ rather than in their historical essence. Ironically, the shortening of historical time-frames and the truncation of historical experience places emphasis not on people as active social agents, as socially- and historically-embedded beings, but on the characteristics of their external environment. ‘From the viewpoint of much of the sociology dominant in the United States today’, wrote Gouldner, ‘it is not man but society that is the measure’. Where once this focus may have been ‘benign’, today

The University for World-Class Professionals. Sociology and Criminology

Whether you choose to study Sociology or Criminology, or both, these disciplines offer an understanding of the world that emphasises the interaction between individuals, groups and social institutions. Sociology takes the view that individuals in everyday life do not have a free choice of behaviour. The discipline of sociology argues that ‘our’ options for how to behave are limited by the expectations of others, responsibilities we may have, and the need to meet certain material, emotional and social requirements. The academic discipline of criminology enables those who study it to consider a range of questions relating to crime, deviance and social control, in addition to the study of law making, law breaking and law enforcement.

Strategic Deviance and Accounting Conservatism

Strategic Deviance and Accounting Conservatism

Zhao Feng et al. (2012) found that the diversification strategy of an enterprise can influence the performance of the enterprise through the interaction of dy- namic capabilities, and the diversification strategy has a significant negative im- pact on the performance of the enterprise [14]. Chen Shou et al. (2014) took a sample of China’s manufacturing listed companies to examine the relationship among CEO rights, corporate strategic deviance, and extreme performance. The study found that when the CEO’s rights are relatively high, the board’s and ex- ternal parties’ supervision are smaller, and the CEO can strengthen his position, use his position to promote the company’s strategy to deviate from the indus- try’s routines, bring greater risks to the company, and thus the company’s per- formance may also deviate from the average. Further, the study found that the improvement of environmental dynamics can, to a certain extent, suppress the relationship between CEO rights and corporate strategic deviance [15]. Lei Hui et al. (2015) used the VAR model and impulse response function analysis me- thods to study the time lag of the enterprise’s competitive strategy. The study found that the impact of the corporate competitive strategy on the performance of the company is lagging and persistent, while the performance of deviant strategy is more lagging behind and performance lasts longer [16].

Algorithmic Criminology

Algorithmic Criminology

Computational criminology has been seen primarily as computer- intensive simulations of criminal wrongdoing. But there is a growing menu of computer-intensive applications in criminology that one might call “computational,” which employ di↵erent methods and have di↵er- ent goals. This paper provides an introduction to computer-intensive, tree-based, machine learning as the method of choice, with the goal of forecasting criminal behavior. The approach is “black box,” for which no apologies are made. There are now in the criminology lit- erature several such applications that have been favorably evaluated with proper hold-out samples. Peeks into the black box indicate that conventional, causal modeling in criminology is missing significant fea- tures of crime etiology.
