`Criminology: A Sociological Introduction presents an outstanding reference point for those starting out in criminology or for those wishing to go back and clarify their understanding of various issues or theories. As an introduction to criminology from a sociological perspective this text is an effective, informative and accessible teaching aid... A more comprehensive introduction to the study of crime than most current examples.' - Ruth Penfold-Mounce, University of Leeds
'I have battled for years to divert students from criminology to sociology, feeling that crime is, in a sinister way, too 'attractive'. With a nicely-structured and well-written text such as this, I feel I am losing my battle.' - Vincenco Ruggiero, Middlesex University
