    Book details

This is the substantially updated and revised 3rd edition of the highly acclaimed "Handbook of Criminology". It is the most comprehensive and authoritative single volume guide to the subject; combining masterly reviews of all the key topics with extensive bibliographical references to aid further research. In addition to the history of the discipline and reviews of the contributions to criminology of different theoretical perspectives, this book provides up-to-date reviews of such diverse topics as crime statistics, policing, the criminal justice process, race and gender, drugs and the media and crime. It is essential reading for all teachers and students of criminology and an indispensable source-book for professionals working in the field. A key feature of the book is the supporting companion web site that will offer students, lecturers and practitioners the benefits of a detailed chapter by chapter bibliography and links to other key criminal justice sites. This book has established itself as the acknowledged leading reference work and textbook in the field and has become the adopted text of most undergraduate and postgraduate criminology and criminal justice courses. It combines the talents of an unusually powerful group of leading writers, who between them cover the entire spectrum of subjects now referred to collectively as 'criminology'. This 3rd edition has been revised in recognition of changes in the politics of 'law and order', policy developments and the range of new topics being taught in the leading centres of criminology education and research. New or updated chapters cover, for example, the impact of New Labour on policy, proposed sentencing reform, social exclusion, the contribution of psychological theory to criminology, managerialism in policing, criminal justice and crime prevention, risk assessment and the 'What Works?' approach to programmes for convicted offenders.

Mike Maguire is Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Cardiff University.
