Criminological Perspectives remains the most authoritative collection of criminological classics. Now in its third edition, it has been updated to reflect many of the global risks and harms that contemporary criminology is concerned with. Eugene McLaughlin and John Muncie have successfully navigated a complex theoretical and conceptual landscape and made it intelligible for students and established scholars alike. Criminological Perspectives remains indispensible.Professor Yvonne JewkesProfessor of Criminology, University of Leicester
A good book to add to a students reading list, with some key chapters.
This is a perfect academic research textbook especially for criminology and criminal justice students. It is especially useful for students new to criminology. It is a student friendly textbook. I would highly recommend this to students.
Useful to plan resources and lessons, however can be two technical and detailed for the use of Level 3 students.
A thoroughly brilliant book that engages the reader with some of the most poignant and relevant criminological literature of the last 50 years.
This book works well as an instructor copy to aid in prep for lessons and to supplement student learning. However the writing style is too dense for Level 3 16-19 year old students.
A great collection of key Criminological readings, particularly for students moving beyond introductory textbooks.
Good core text for criminology and sociology students if they need their memories refreshing or want to brush up on key criminological concepts. This is used for a thrid year criminology/sociology core theory unit at MMU.
This is an invaluable book for students. It provides a comprehensive collection of the essential criminological texts, and equips the reader with the skills to engage with theory and concepts.
Very useful textbook for students, particularly as a starting point for those studying criminological theory. An ideal text book, sets the scene for the degree course
This book is easy reading and one which UG students will find useful on any Criminology programme. Especially useful to those students who find theory difficult to grasp.
This book provides an excellent reference book with its wide range of Criminological theory
As such it will prove to be a book used time and again throughout a students journey from foundation level and to the completion of the Criminology Degree
It also brings Criminology and Criminal Justice to address modern dilemas related to Human Rights and threats facing todays society and in doing so provides a comprehensive reference book to draw upon developing Criminology in providing explanations for human behavior
Very handy reader
This book has really helped my students when researching the different theoretical perspectives in groups.
Will be recommending our college to adopt this book into the library and reading lists.
A well selected text that makes key articles in the field available to students
This is an excellent collection of 'classics' which have influenced criminological thinking.
This book provides a thorough grounding in criminology's key debates. A useful primer for new and experienced students.
Excellent Reader - great resource
The revisions to this edition are excellent.
Essential reading for any Criminology course.
