Description


Crime and Justice: A Guide to Criminology has been for many years a leading Australian textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students approaching this field of study for the first time. The contributors are well known research-active academics in Australia who contribute to the criminological debate at a national and international level.

It covers a wide range of topics including: different forms of crimes – from street crime to state crime and international crimes; who commits crimes and who are the victims of crimes; and how society responds to crime. It also includes a dedicated chapter on ‘criminology study skills’ that will be of benefit to students across their studies. This book offers a balance between the critical and administrative criminological traditions, adding to the discourse of crime and justice in the 21stcentury.

This fifth edition, with 10 new authors and 31 returning authors, features seven new chapters:
Chapter 2: The distribution of crime over populations, space and time
Chapter 4: Explanations of crime
Chapter 15: Criminal justice system – Aims and processes
Chapter 18: Privatisation in the criminal justice system
Chapter 26: Remedies for miscarriages of justice
Chapter 27: Criminology in Australia – Past, present and future
Chapter 29: Study skills for Criminology

Crime and Justice: A Guide to Criminology 5th Edition is essential reading for students of criminal justice, criminology, penology, policing, sociology, justice and society studies, and legal studies. Practitioners interested in these areas would also be well-served by this text.
