4. An economy of “self-reliance” “Self-reliance” was the slogan that guided China’s Cultural Revolution economy, reflecting both China’s isolation as a nation and Maoist desires to substitute abundant human labor for scarce capital as a strategy for economic development. China’s economy fared better than post-Mao reformers admitted, but it did not conform to typical developmental patterns; Chinese had low incomes but much higher literacy and life expectancy than such poverty usually suggests.

9. Where next for criminology? In this Very Short Introduction to criminology, I have focused on a number of fundamental issues. What is crime? How much crime is there and how do we know? How might we explain long-term trends in crime? Who commits crime; and when and why do they stop? And how do we control or prevent crime? By this stage, I hope we might agree that these are important and interesting questions, and that criminology already has a few thoughtful answers to some of them. But what does the future hold?

5. Varieties ‘The’ welfare state does not exist as such. Only particular welfare states exist, each of them different, each of them complex, each of them constantly in motion. I have used the USA and the UK to illustrate the welfare state’s history and character but neither of these nations is especially typical. No national welfare state ever is. Looked at in detail, every developed country has a distinctive welfare state of its own.
