An introduction to criminology for those who want to learn more, wheter they are already studying the subject or interested in the field. This title describes and analyzes the development of criminology as a discipline, explaining the main approaches and schools of thought, and how these have been applied in practice. It then takes the example of serial murder to demonstrate the way in which criminologists seek to understand crime, and how different approaches and traditions can play a part in explaining particluar kinds of crime, and how these are represented and constructed socially.
