Crime and Justice: a Guide to Criminology has been for many years a leading Australian textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students approaching this subject for the first time. The contributors are well known research academics in Australia who contribute to the criminological debate at national and international levels. Fully revised and updated, this 4th edition offers a comprehensive guide in criminal justice and criminology that is well suited to a dual-semester approach. It covers a wide range of topics including: different forms of crimes - from street crime to state crime and international crimes; who commits crimes and who are the victims of crimes; and how society responds to crime. This book offers a balance between critical and administrative criminological traditions to add to the discourse of crime and justice in the twenty-first century. This 4th edition, with 22 new authors and 15 returning authors, features 6 new chapters. This revised edition offers clear, accessible material, with a number of relevant and up-to-date case studies, examples, tables and images. It also includes further readings and questions at the end of each chapter.
