Out of all the books that i have bought for my criminology study this has been by far the best. It has lots of references and a simpler understanding of theories of criminology. Hazel Croall is very good at explaining things in the book and has become my companion.

Well written in a straight forward manner which does not, however, dumb down the information or the quality of the analysis. Excellent all round text book
