  • Written with one single focus in mind: students. Criminology is a new style of core textbook that speaks directly to students - encouraging, engaging, and enthusing at all times
  • Clear, no-nonsense explanation is combined with constant emphasis on a critical approach - 'telling it like it is' boxes explore the particular viewpoints of the expert authors, while 'what do you think?' features challenge students to develop their own opinions
  • 'Conversations' boxes bring in voices from across the world of criminology and criminal justice, including interviews with police officers, researchers, probation officers, students, and employability experts. These reinforce the applied nature of the discussion - showing students the impact that criminological research and policy has on practice
  • Logical structure takes the reader on a journey from their first steps in criminology through to becoming a researcher of criminology and exploring opportunities for potential employment
  • Accompanied by an extensive Online Resource Centre, which includes selected further readings and web links, mini video lecturers from the authors, and recorded discussions between the authors
