Summary

Criminology is a discipline that is constituted by its subject matter rather than being bound by an agreed set of concepts or way of thinking. This fully updated third edition of Criminology: The Basics is a lively and engaging guide to this compelling and complex subject. Topics covered include:

  • the history and development of criminology
  • myths about crime and offenders
  • the search for criminological explanation
  • victims of crime and state crime
  • crime prevention, cybercrime, and the future of crime control
  • criminology and intersectionality

This edition also includes new sections on genocide, terrorism, cultural victimology, and Westo-centric thinking.

Concise and accessible, this book utilises chapter summaries, exercise questions and lists of further reading to provide a perfect introduction to this subject.
