Indigenous Criminology is the first title to be published in the New Horizons in Criminology series edited by Andrew Millie. The intention behind the series is to provide authoritative and accessible sources on cutting-edge topics for non-specialists, thereby expanding the list of specialized 'criminologies' in areas characterized by innovation, resistance or neglect within the mainstream discipline. Chris Cunneen and Juan Tauri have approached their task with this brief in mind, making a powerful case that both theoretical and methodological reorientations are essential if criminology is to contribute to an emancipatory decolonization agenda. While Indigenous scholars and their allies have been engaged in this project for some time, the wider recognition of an Indigenous Criminology will require reflexivity and a preparedness to acknowledge the role played by the discipline in historical and ongoing colonization projects.
