by Sandra Walklate - £15.99  Taylor & Francis Ltd (Routledge) (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781138803442 | ISBN 10: 1138803448

Criminology is a discipline that is constituted by its subject matter rather than being bound by an agreed set of concepts or way of thinking. This fully updated third edition of Criminology: The Basics is a lively and engaging guide to this compelling and complex subject. Topics covered include:
 
- the history and development of criminology
- myths about crime and offenders
- the search for criminological explanation
- victims of crime and state crime
- crime prevention, cybercrime, and the future of crime control
- criminology and intersectionality
 
This edition also includes new sections on genocide, terrorism, cultural victimology, and Westo-centric thinking.
 
Concise and accessible, this book utilises chapter summaries, exercise questions and lists of further reading to provide a perfect introduction to this subject.
