Product Description: `This second edition is an excellent updated collection. The volume's fifty essays provide invaluable sources for academics, students and practitioners interested in enduring and new criminological issues and concerns' - SCOLAG Legal Journal

`In its acumen and choice of readings it is simply the best accompanying reader for an undergraduate criminological theory course' -

Dr Colin Webster, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Teeside

`This is by far the most comprehensive and enjoyable reader in criminological theory. It is both international in its scope and historical in its depth. This is a must for a student beginning the subject or a postgraduate wanting to be reminded how criminology at its best can be so intellectually exhilarating. For the writer here are all the core articles you need for quick reference, for the teacher this is one book you can recommend with the knowledge that it can be used across topics whilst presenting the student with the width of perspective which is the basis of a sound education in the social sciences' - Jock Young, Visiting Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the City University of New York

`Provides an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the critical issues and debates that are revitalising contemporary criminology. This genuinely international text will be an invaluable resource for both students and lecturers alike' - Professor Adam Crawford, Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, Department of Law, University of Leeds

The Second Edition of this highly successful and internationally acclaimed Reader, now fully revised and updated, provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the depth and diversity of criminological thinking. The carefully selected readings which cover the most significant theoretical and empirical work in the field, provide access to the core perspectives that underpin criminology and promote fresh debate at the interface of the different perspectives.

The Reader is organised into six sections: Part One: Criminological Formations; Part Two: Crime Causation; Part Three: Criminalisation; Part Four: Criminal Justice and Crime Prevention; Part Five: Discipline and Governance; Part Six: Criminological Transformations.

It contains new readings on:

#65533; race and criminalisation

#65533; the governance of crime

#65533; psycho-social criminology

#65533; cultural criminology

#65533; global criminology.

In order to guide readers through the different perspectives, the text has a substantial introduction. Each part of the reader is also prefaced by a concise introduction that identifies the significance of each article.

The Second Edition of Criminological Perspectives offers the most comprehensive guide to the major topics and areas of debate that constitute contemporary criminology. It will be essential reading for students of criminology, criminal justice studies, socio-legal studies, sociology, social policy and social work.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
