What is the definition of 'crime'? Law and Crime helps the criminologist to understand how the law constructs crime and how one might engage in critical analysis of such legal constructions. It uses a thematic approach to comprehensively explore the relationship between criminal conduct, criminal justice and the law.

The book introduces key topics in criminal law scholarship for criminologists, including:

criminalizationfault and criminal responsibilitycorporate liabilitythe production of criminal guiltthe nature of judicial punishment.

Aimed at students with no prior knowledge of law, the book includes many useful features to enhance understanding, from chapter overviews and key terms to study questions and suggestions for further reading.

The Key Approaches to Criminology series celebrates the removal of traditional barriers between disciplines and, specifically, reflects criminology's interdisciplinary nature and focus. It brings together some of the leading scholars working at the intersections of criminology and related subjects. Each book in the series helps readers to make intellectual connections between criminology and other discourses, and to understand the importance of studying crime and criminal justice within the context of broader debates.

The series is intended to have appeal across the entire range of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and beyond, comprising books which offer introductions to the fields as well as advancing ideas and knowledge in their subject areas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As it has developed, criminology has become rather distanced from one of it's original sources - criminal law. Law and Crime provides a clearly-written, stimulating and historically-rooted introduction to criminal law and reminds us of its continuing relevance to criminology -- Professor George Mair
Law and Crime is an invaluable guide for anyone wishing to explore the relationship between criminal law and criminology; between doctrine and the practices of punishment. It is a provocative and engaging exploration of the criminal law as a social institution that will be of considerable interest to criminologists and criminal lawyers alike -- Professor Lucia Zedner
