'This comprehensive volume is sure to put a new face on criminology; where it's been, where it is now and what to expect in the future. Well-written, well thought out and informative, it is a must-read for anyone in the criminology field.' - J.A. Hitchcock, Cyber Crime Expert and President of Working to Halt Online Abuse

'Blending historical inquiry with critical analysis, this highly engaging introduction to criminology should be on the reading list of everyone who is interested in crime and how we think about it.' - Dorothy Denning, Professor of Defense Analysis, Naval Postgraduate School, USA
