This book is a fundamental book on the subject of Criminology, Katherine Williams outlines nearly every question anyone could ask on the subject and produces a detailed answer. It asks questions like "Why do people become criminals?" and gives a educated answer that is analytical and looks at the answer from a sociological, psychological and theoretical point of view, also explaining why society acts the way it does to crime.

This is the fifth edition of the book, so the information in this copy is up to date, produces a comprehensive overview of criminology on the whole.

The book provides questions at the end of each chapter and references from which the author has taken her information, which also prove useful to students that want to look up other sources of information on that subject.

this book was a valuble resource. i would recommend this to anyone who is studying Criminology, however other resources were required as not all the theories were covered in this book.

After studying criminology for two years i have several text books, which i have to say all have their uses, however sometimes the text can be a little hard to read making the subject matter a little hard going. Entering my third year i started to look for new books to add to my collection. This book is brilliant it covers so many aspects with clear and concise text whilst also being an easy read, a must have for any students collection be them first year or lecturer.

A very well written book. Even though I'm not a law student I loved using this book as reference. Everything is very clearly explained.
