Product Description


... an undoubted success - and will, I am certain, stimulate further debate and reflection in moving towards a range of criminological futures. (Alistair Fraser, Asian Criminology)

In response to the question posed in the title, the contributors offer a wide variety of answers, of visions and conceptions of criminology, of ways of doing criminology and of ways of mapping its field of inquiry. (Russell Hogg, British Journal of Criminology)

Over 36 chapters Bosworth and Hoyle's collection provides unsurpassed insight into the rocky, but nonetheless exciting, terrain to be negotiated in being a criminologist. It is essential reading for those already negotiating (and perhaps lost on) that terrain, and must surely become both a comprehensive and challenging resource for the orientation of newcomers. (Alistair Henry, Edinburgh Law Review)

Carolyn Hoyle has been at the Oxford Centre for Criminology since 1991. She has published empirical and theoretical research on a number of criminological topics including policing, domestic violence, restorative justice and the death penalty.

Excellent book for criminolgy students 14 Aug. 2012

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this book to be both informative and non-complicated to read. It gives a strong foundation to creating the basis of one's understanding about criminology. I would recommend this book to first year criminolgy students as it gives a good overall view on the fundamentals of criminology.
