The fourth edition of Criminology provides a detailed discussion of not only the causes, but also the perception and nature of crime. Throughout the text, the author draws on a wide range of research in order to consider both sociological and psychological explanations of criminal behavior, aiming to ask the right questions rather than provide a definitive set of answers. The book provides the reader with a clearly expressed analysis of the main criminological theories, following a historical path through their development. It is fully referenced, guiding the reader to further, more in-depth study of any particular aspect. The fourth edition has been fully updated and contains expanded coverage of contemporary issues in criminology, including the definition and treatment of victims. There is also an expanded introductory chapter which includes a discussion on criminological research methods. Criminology is designed for undergraduates studying criminology, criminological theory, and the sociology of deviance. Its detailed analysis and sources of further reading will also be of interest to postgraduate students.
