Book Description

May 23 2009 0199227292 978-0199227297 Second Edition
Few subjects provoke as much public fascination and political concern as crime and criminality. Criminology is an ideal textbook for undergraduate students approaching the subject for the first time. It examines a wide range of topics, including historical and contemporary understandings of crime and criminal justice; different forms of crime - from street crime to state crime; who commits crime and who are the victims of crime; and how society and state agencies respond to crime and disorder. The contributions to the book offer clear, accessible introductions to the main topics and issues of criminology and the book includes questions, summaries, further reading guidance, useful web links, and tables and diagrams throughout. The second edition contains a new chapter on criminological research to provide students with an overview of the different research methods used in the study of criminology. All chapters have been fully revised and updated to incorporate recent developments in the field, including changes in criminal justice policy. This book is accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre which can be used by lecturers and students alike. The resources available are as follows: Lecturer Resources * Lecture notes by chapter * Powerpoint slides to accompany lecture notes * Test bank of multiple choice questions Student Resources * Updates * Chapter synopses * Annotated further reading lists * Glossary * Web links

Review

Review from previous edition: "A first-rate resource with which to study and debate current issues within the subject." --Anna Markovska, Anglia Ruskin University, The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice Vol 46 No 4, September 2007

"Given its scope and the inclusion of study questions, further reading and web links, lecturers will inevitably find this a useful core textbook." --Times Higher Education Supplement

"The editors bring together an excellent group of contributions, making this a fascinating read. One of the real benefits is the scope of the material covered, which includes areas often neglected by criminology textbooks." --Times Higher Education Supplement

"A very useful compilation of the subject of criminology for undergraduates and people studying criminology, particularly for the first time." --Dr. Lystra Hagley-Dickinson, British Journal of Criminology Newsletter 2006
