Reviews

'I think undergraduate students will find a book like this one very handy. Most texts on criminal justice do not explain the terms used in detail. This book will fill in the gap.' - Dr Bankole Cole, Director of Undergraduate Studies for Criminology, University of Hull, UK
'The main strength of the book is the distinctive focus on social scientific and legal perspectives whereas most competitors tend to concentrate on only one of these perspectives.' - Dr Chris Crowther-Dowey, Nottingham Trent University, UK
