Crime is big news. From murder to theft to drug gangs, crime and criminal justice affect the lives of millions of people worldwide. Hardly surprisingly, crime has been pushed high up the public policy agenda across the world. But how can we measure crime, or evaluate the effectiveness of preventative measures? Does the threat of prison reduce someone's likelihood of reoffending, or would rehabilitation be more constructive? In this Very Short Introduction Tim Newburn considers how we can study trends in crime and use them to inform preventative policy and criminal justice. Analyzing the history of the subject, he reflects on our understanding of crime and responses to crime in earlier historical periods. Considering trends in crime in the developed world, Newburn discusses its causes, exploring the relationship between drugs and crime, analyzing what we know about why people stop offending, and looking at both formal and informal responses to crime. Newburn concludes by discussing what role criminology can plausibly be anticipated to have in crime control and politics, and what its limits are. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Criminology, by its very nature as a non-disciplinary field of research and scholarship, has always relied on theoretical perspectives, derived from external disciplines and bodies of literature, for its constant renewal. The editors of New Directions for Criminology chose to consult scholars from outside the criminological community to demonstrate how the latest theoretical work in their field can be made fruitful for criminology. All contributors are familiar with the fundamentals of criminological theories and research, and all are well placed to clearly make the connections between the cutting edge of their field of research and its potential for criminology. New Directions for Criminology makes a distinction between papers that elaborate on the usefulness of particular theories and perspectives for criminology, and papers that outline particular research themes which will be of interest to those working within the broader criminological community. Contents include: Why Criminal Law? Why Break It? If Broken, Then What?' - Criminology and Assemblage Theory - Criminology and Deleuzoguattarism - Criminology and Lacan's Psychoanalytical Approach - Criminology and Forms of Life - Foundations and Origins as Criminological Objects - Criminological Conversations - Criminological Tribes.

Known for its engaging and accessible writing style, this probing text covers the traditional areas of criminology, but also addresses questions of popular concern and policy debate, using systematic evidence to explore such topics as deterrence and incapacitation; race and social class; the rights of the accused; and domestic violence. Challenging readers to think about even the most obvious and commonsense ideas in terms of the evidence that might support or contradict it, the text delves even deeper, encouraging them to see the connection between abstract theoretical propositions and the reality they see everyday in their own lives and in the media. Using a highly perceptive, lively, and absorbing writing style to make serious ideas and evidence easily understandable to a wide range of readers, the book integrates interesting boxes throughout to bring experientially distant ideas closer and make concepts more relevant: "On Campus Boxes" highlight crime and other topical issues as they relate to campus life, and "Crime in the News Boxes" take items from newspapers to illustrate ideas and provide models for discussing current cases and issues. Reviewer Richard Wright from the University of Scranton says the text "...offers insightful typologies of crime—[presenting] a superb comparison of the interactionist; a cultural and structural explanation of homicide; a first rate discussion of felony murder; and exemplary sections on bookmaking and loansharks." Features new to this edition include an increased number of graphs and tables to help readers get a better grasp of quantitative data; chapter key terms, chapter outlines and a thorough end-of-book glossary for better understanding; and lucid discussions on Hirschi and Gottfredson's self-control theory, community policing, and date rape. For sociologist and criminologists.

This book sets to explore the key issues and future prospects facing critical criminology, bringing together a set of leading authorities in the field from the UK, Australasia and the USA. A key concern of the book is to review the possibilities and strategies of pursuing critical criminological scholarship in the context of an increasingly dominant administrative criminology paradigm, reflected in the rise of neo-liberalism, a 'governmentalised' criminology of risk, crime control and situational crime prevention.
