In this chapter, we review developments in the field of criminology since the first editors began this project, pay tribute to their efforts, and outline our vision for the new edition. We argue that British criminology has developed a unique character of its own, shaped by the backgrounds and proclivities of key individual scholars, but also by the history, culture, and organization of British universities and society. This volume constitutes a living archive—a marked step in the life narrative of our field and a celebration of its growing strengths and popularity as a subject.
