Key Readings in Criminology provides a comprehensive single-volume collection of readings in criminology. It provides students with convenient access to a broad range of excerpts (over 150 readings) from original criminological texts and key articles, and is designed to be used either as a stand-alone text or in conjunction with the same author's textbook, Criminology. This volume can be used in a number of ways in support of the study of criminology: * as a source of both 'key' and supplementary reading for lectures; * as the basis for organized reading in advance of seminars and tutorials; * as the basis for classroom discussion and analysis; * as a broad source of reading for exam revision; * in addition it provides students with access to a broad range of materials with which to follow up their reading of their main textbook; * it includes readings that include more recent summaries of particularly important criminological issues, as well as excerpts from criminological classics; * it also introduces students not only to criminological argument and debate, but also encourages them to read primary as well as secondary or summary sources.

Review quote

'... by far the most comprehensive, contemporary and wide-ranging reader on the market ... I have no doubt that it will prove very successful indeed.' - Dave Edwards, London Metropolitan University '... it's a terrific collection and nothing nearly as good exists elsewhere.' - Jonathan Simon, University of California Berkeley 'A lot of criminology for little money. It contains so many classics we want our students to read anyway, that it is fair to say it is an excellent buy for anyone studying criminology' - Professor Renvan Swaaningen, Erasmus University, Rotterdam
