Textbook on Criminology offers an engaging and wide-ranging account of crime and criminology. It provides a clear and comprehensive consideration of the theoretical, practical, and political aspects of the subject, including the influence of physical, biological, psychological, and social factors on criminality. The text is ideal both for law students studying criminology modules, and for students studying criminological theory modules as part of their criminology degrees.

The author deals with the major questions of criminology such as 'how do you define a crime?', 'why do people become criminals?', and 'how should we deal with criminals?'. Each question is studied from an objective and academic viewpoint and encourages greater social, political, and philosophical awareness of crime, criminals, and society's response to them. The text also maps out the changes in crime control and society's expectations in relation to crime control, and students will find the insightful chapter on terrorism and state violence to be of particular interest and relevance in light of recent global events.
