In Studying Criminology, the author explores the interplay between philosophical and criminological theories to provide a stimulating and insightful overview of the subject. It offers students a fresh way of thinking about crime, giving them an opportunity to develop their understanding and to hone their critical skills.

Conceived by Chris Grey as an antidote to conventional textbooks, each book in the `Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap' series takes a core area of the curriculum and turns it on its head by providing a critical and sophisticated overview of the key issues and debates in an informal, conversational and often humorous way.


Suitable for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students of Criminology and anybody interested in the field of Criminological studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Stimulating, beautifully composed and wonderfully readable, this book goes beyond crime and criminology as we know it. Drawing on a rich source base of philosophical and criminological insights, the book provides a highly useful and at times provocative overview of what criminology is really all about. This is a must read for anyone concerned with crime, crime control, and criminology' -
Patrick Van Calster
