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
