A substantially updated and revised new edition of this reference book. It combines the talents of a group of writers who together cover the entire spectrum of subjects now referred to collectively as "criminology". From the history of the discipline and its present organization in the UK, the book goes on to deal with topics as diverse as policing, alcohol and crime, juvenile crime, crime statistics, drugs and crime, custodial and non-custodial sentences, prisons, victims, and the organization of professional crime in Britain. Altogether, it constitutes a comprehensive single volume reference and text on the subject. This book is intended for undergraduates studying criminology, the sociology of deviance, penology, criminal justice, and the history of crime; postgraduate students of criminology and socio-legal studies; and scholars and teachers of criminology and sociology.
