Crime, social control and social organisation : a historically oriented analysis of crime and social control with special reference to Kenya
Mutuli Muli, Florence
This thesis, taking Kenya as a specific example is an attempt to look at crime and social control in its historical specificity. The thesis takes social control as the point of departure in its explanation of crime. Underlying the analysis offered here is the contention that any meaningful explanation of crime must start with an appreciation of the relationship between crime and social con¬ trol, especially the role law in general and criminal law in particular plays in the creation and development of specific social structures and its consequences for the general social fabric.
