In this article the author argues that the study of the crimes of the powerful may help re-vive critical criminological analyses and discourses. This specific arena of research, in his view, may lead us to experience anti-criminological moments and to elaborate some anti-criminological notions. By anti-criminological moments and notions he simply means those small revolutions in our disciplinary paradigm, those ruptures which throw the discipline into a temporary crisis, before being at times slowly absorbed, thus enriching the discipline itself.
