Product description

Review

"This book, now in its third edition, is still unsurpassed in terms of its depth, breadth and coverage for new undergraduate Criminology students. The addition of a chapter on politics and crime does what so few textbooks manage to do - locate criminology within its historical, social and political context. The live Twitter feed and Facebook page will complement the author's already well established position as the 'go to' criminologist on social media."

- Dr Sarah Charman, University of Portsmouth

"Criminology is by far the best, most comprehensive and authoritative textbook available. The third edition provides updated material on recent developments and an invaluable new chapter on the politics of crime control. The clarity of the writing, the breadth and depth of coverage, the links to further reading and to other relevant resources all make this a perfectly balanced introduction to the subject."

- Professor George Mair, Liverpool Hope University

"Comprehensive in its coverage and written in a manner that is accessible to all students, the third edition of Criminology underlines why it is the undergraduate textbook. The classic sections have been complemented by new chapters that help students understand how crime control does not take place in a vacuum (The Politics of Crime and its Control), as well as encouraging students to think critically about the crime information we consume (Crime Data and Crime Trends). The most valuable aspect of the text is how core research methods concepts are provided in the same books as criminological content, which helps students to see, and understand, the crucial link between theory and research. Without doubt, this textbook provides the starting point for any criminological discussion."

- Dr Vicky Heap, Sheffield Hallam University

"This is the most comprehensive, detailed and clearly structured introduction to Criminology and Criminal Justice on the market. It has already become to go-to textbook for Criminology undergraduates, and with the addition of new material tackling the leading-edge debates shaping the field today, Tim Newburn has managed in this 3rd Edition to raise the bar even further. Just about every conceivable criminological concept, theory, method and approach is contextualised, outlined and evaluated. With extensive reading lists, smart discussion and revision questions, and a dynamic website, this textbook is a must for students of Criminology and Criminal Justice."

- Professor Chris Greer, City University London

"Tim Newburn’s Criminology continues to be a valuable resource to students seeking to engage with the capacious field that is criminology. The revised chapter on the politics of crime provides a neat, nuanced account of the politics of crime control over the past 50 years. In conjunction with the chapters on late modernity and penology (to take one set of examples), it will equip the inquisitive student with the tools with which to dive further into the murky depths of the politics of criminal justice. An enjoyable, engaging and authoritative text."

- Dr Harry Annison, Lecturer in Criminal Law and Criminology, University of Southampton

"Newburn's Criminology is already an indispensable text for students trying to navigate and make sense of the diverse and fast changing field of criminological scholarship. This updated edition builds on the
strengths of the first two. There are few texts on the market, if any, which balance comprehensive coverage and accessibility as well as this one."

- Professor Katja Franko, University of Oslo
