Editorial Reviews

Review

'... by far the most comprehensive, contemporary and wide-ranging reader on the market ... I have no doubt that it will prove very successful indeed.'  Dave Edwards, London Metropolitan University

'... it's a terrific collection and nothing nearly as good exists elsewhere.'  Jonathan Simon, University of California Berkeley

'A lot of criminology for little money. It contains so many classics we want our students to read anyway, that it is fair to say it is an excellent buy for anyone studying criminology'  Professor Renvan Swaaningen, Erasmus University, Rotterdam

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on March 15, 2010
Format: Paperback
An impressive 908-page compendium, "Key Readings in Criminology" truly lives up to its title by providing more than 140 entries drawn from criminological studies, texts, and articles, making it ideal as a curriculum textbook, as well as supplemental reading for the creation of papers and articles on criminology. Superbly organized into sections ranging from 'Understanding Crime and Criminology'; 'Crime and Punishment in History'; 'Crime Data and Crime Trends'; and 'Crime and the Media'; to 'Radical and Critical Criminology'; 'Feminist Criminology'; Victims, Victimization and Victimology'; 'White-Collar and Corporate Crime'; 'Organized Crime'; 'Understanding Criminology', under the deft and expert editorship of Tim Newborn, "Key Readings in Criminology" surveys all aspects and facets of the psychology of criminal behavior. Of special note is the concluding section on 'Doing Criminological Research'. Enhanced for students with a comprehensive Index, "Key Readings in Criminology" is not only appropriate for academic library Criminology reference collections, but for the non-specialist general reader with an interest in the study of crime, its causes, formats, and consequences.
