Since its publication in 2007, Criminology has firmly established itself as the definitive introduction to the subject. With this second edition, Tim Newburn has significantly updated the volume with new material (e.g. on `hate crime' and `green criminology') and included analyses of the most noteworthy criminal(ized) events of the last five years. Lecturers value this book for its comprehensiveness and authority; students appreciate its relevance, accessibility and lively, unpatronizing tone. Criminology remains a remarkable achievement by one of the most respected scholars in the field.
-Yvonne Jewkes, Professor of Criminology, University of Leicester, UK
As usual Newburn provides a great overview of the subject area which draws out the key debates. If students wanted to access one resource ... then I would recommend this. Newburn's research is up to date and whilst he provides a good level of information he also directs readers to useful resources and further research so that students can widen the scope of their reading.
