    DescriptionCrime and Criminology is about the causes of crime. More specifically, it describes the diverse and at times competing perspectives within criminology, and their attempts to explain why certain types of people engage in certain types of behaviour that have been identified as being criminal in nature. This book encourages students to think about and discuss the key questions criminologists face, such as: What kind of 'work' should we be doing, and why?; What kind of society do we want, and why?; and, How do we distinguish between 'good' and 'bad' (or 'right' and 'wrong'), and why? New to this Edition: New co-author Nicole Asquith adds a new dimension to the theoretical analysis New 'From Theory to Practice' feature offers readers an opportunity to see theory in action, and evaluate the ways in which these theories are employed by criminologists in their analysis of contemporary criminological issues. Each example varies in crime, victim or offender, and thus offers a wide range of applied contexts. New section in introductory chapter on how to use theory. Case Studies, examples and references have been comprehensively updated throughout. Crime and Criminology is also available as an e-book.
