CRIMINOLOGY. Thorough. Engaging. Distinctive. 'From the moment you begin to study criminology, you should consider yourself a criminologist' Steve Case, Chapter 2 Criminology is a core, introductory textbook that takes students further. From the first chapter, students are encouraged to regard themselves as producers of criminological knowledge. Starting from the basics, the book takes students on a journey through the subject. This begins with what crime is and the theories that try to explain it, through society's response to crime, and ultimately to how to carry out independent research and plan first steps in a career. The critical, applied approach is emphasized through some of the many features that are integrated throughout the book. These include conversations with authentic voices from the field, compelling personal insights from the authors, and challenges to students to question assumptions, apply knowledge and critically reflect on their personal viewpoints. The ultimate goal behind Criminology is a bold, important, and ambitious one. Both student-focused and research engaged, the purpose of the book is to contribute towards producing the next generation of criminologists who are switched-on, excited, active, and - above all - critical. Online Resource Centre Criminology is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre containing the following resources: - Additional chapters on the criminal justice systems in the UK's devolved jurisdictions - Selected further readings and web links - Over 100 multiple choice questions - Advice on 'decoding' academic articles - Numerous time-saving resources for teaching staff

MEDIA REVIEWS
Well-written and easy to follow, this book speaks to students in an engaging, honest way, leaving room for critical thinking and their own personal interpretations. * Dr Anita Lavorgna, University of Southampton *
This is an ambitious, engaging and comprehensive companion guide for students of criminology. It offers much more than a conventional textbook and will be an invaluable resource for students at all levels. * Professor Neil Chakraborti, University of Leicester *
A great go-to manual for every aspect of the subject at degree level, this book really helps the reader understand what criminology means in reality. * Margherita Colucci, student, Manchester Metropolitan University *
This book provides highly accessible and engaging advice and information on all aspects of the discipline. It really is the complete criminology textbook. * Dr Daniel McCarthy, University of Surrey *
This excellent, introductory criminology textbook is the most 'student-friendly' that I have come across. Not only does it provide precisely the sort of help in navigating an unfamiliar or new subject that students need, it also pays careful attention to preparing them for and supporting them through the 'student journey'. Criminology undergraduates will find it indispensable - and there is plenty here for more advanced students and scholars too. * Professor Fergus McNeill, University of Glasgow *
This book is a must-have for every criminology student. Packed with interesting, up-to-date information, it introduces readers to different debates and perspectives. I can't wait until it's published. * Evelin Gaal, student, London Metropolitan University *
An engaging, insightful and highly practical guide to studying criminology and criminal justice, carefully crafted by some of the leading educators in the field. Positioning the study of criminology as a pathway to becoming an effective, engaged and employable student makes this book stand out from the rest. A one stop shop for any first year undergraduate student of criminology and the related disciplines of sociology, social policy, and social work. * Professor Matthew Williams, Cardiff University *
