Review:

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

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
