Bill Chambliss, Stan Cohen and Sebastian Scheerer have read earlier versions of this paper and given me valuable help in revising it. Sebastian Scheerer also produced a first English version of the final part of my paper ‘Kriminalpolitik jenseits von Schuld und Sühne’,Kriminalsoziologische Bibliografie, 11, 1984, no. 45, 69–78, which has become the basis of part III of the present article. I greatly appreciate this support, thank you all.
