User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This is the definitive introduction to criminology - whether in the UK, where it was written, or anywhere else. It is comprehensive in its coverage of all of the key theoretical aspects to understanding crime and criminals. It is well-written and well-edited so each if the individually-authored chapters fit well together. The range of contributions means the coverage is very broad, but always insightful and well-balanced. A must-have book for both students and practitioners I would say.
