Product description

Review

What is crime? Who is a criminal? These are big questions, tackled adroitly and insightfully in this short but weighty book. ― Shadd Maruna, Co-Editor, Oxford Handbook of Criminology

Tim Newburn presents the fundamental concepts, concerns, and findings of criminology with a clarity and wit that make it fully accessible to the beginner without ever sacrificing the depth and originality needed to hold the attention of the expert. This is a wonderfully concise and engaging book! ―
David Garland, Professor of Law and Sociology, New York University
