Sociological theories of crime

By Paul Rock

Abstract

The most comprehensive and authoritative single volume text on the subject, the fourth edition of the acclaimed Oxford Handbook of Criminology combines state-of-the-art reviews of all the key topics with extensive references to aid further research. In addition to the analysis of the main theoretical perspectives, the book provides up-to-date coverage of research and policy developments concerning criminal justice, crime, criminalization, crime statistics, and their relationship to race, gender, youth cultures, and the political economy. The fourth edition has been substantially revised and updated, with new chapters on important areas such as cultural criminology, the governance of security, and diversity, crime and criminal justice. Developed to meet course requirements, the Oxford Handbook of Criminology is essential reading for all students and teachers of criminology and an indispensable source book for professionals
