Overview

This sociological introduction provides a much-needed textbook for an increasingly popular area of study. Written by a team of authors with a broad range of teaching and individual expertise, it covers almost every module offered in UK criminological courses and will be valuable to students of criminology worldwide. It covers:

  • key traditions in criminology, their critical assessment and more recent developments
  • new ways of thinking about crime and control, including crime and emotions, drugs and alcohol, from a public health perspective
  • different dimensions of the problem of crime and misconduct, including crime and sexuality, crimes against the environment, crime and human rights and organizational deviance
  • key debates in criminological theory
  • the criminal justice system
  • new areas such as the globalization of crime, and crime in cyberspace.

Specially designed to be user-friendly, each chapter contains boxed material on current controversies, key thinkers and examples of crime and criminal justice around the world with statistical tables, maps, summaries, critical thinking questions, annotated references and a glossary of key terms, as well as further reading sections and additional resource information as weblinks.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Criminology: A Sociological Introduction presents an outstanding reference point for those starting out in criminology or for those wishing to go back and clarify their understanding of various issues or theories. As an introduction to criminology from a sociological perspective this text is an effective, informative and accessible teaching aid... A more comprehensive introduction to the study of crime than most current examples.' - Ruth Penfold-Mounce, University of Leeds

'I have battled for years to divert students from criminology to sociology, feeling that crime is, in a sinister way, too 'attractive'. With a nicely-structured and well-written text such as this, I feel I am losing my battle.' - Vincenco Ruggiero, Middlesex University
