One of the more innovative fields that has been steadily on the rise in criminology over the last decade consists of the application of the social network framework to various forms of crime phenomena. Crime and Networks combines the most recent empirical research contributions from the top scholars in this area. More than any other past research endeavour, the seventeen chapters in this book transpose to criminology the many conceptual and methodological options from the social network analysis repertoire.

Crime and Networks pushes the sociology of crime to new levels by introducing the most advanced assessments of the structural and organizational features of crime. This is the only book of its kind that looks at the use of networks in understanding crime, and can be used for an array of courses at the master's level, both substantive and methodological.
