To date postmodern criminology has received little attention from South African criminologists and most seem content to subscribe to the more conventional approaches (mainstream and radical) to explain, prevent and control crime. This article will briefly focus on conventional theoretical criminology, the study field of criminology, and then discuss the development of postmodern criminology before evaluating postmodern criminology in South Africa.
