The field of crime and delinquency attracts a great deal of heated and partial opinion, prejudice and other forms of mal-thinking. When there is a scientific approach there tends to be a psychological explanation. This book, first published in 1971, is a corrective to both trends. It is a discussion of criminal behaviour in relation to a wide range of behaviours which could be called deviance and regards the whole field from the sociological point of view. The whole discussion is related to social policy, and is vital reading for students of sociology and criminology.

'This accessibly written book is truly innovative in combining an introduction to key perspectives and topics in criminology with a very student friendly study guide to the problems of researching and writing in the discipline' - Professor Kevin Stenson, Middlesex University This book offers a timely introduction both to the discipline of criminology and to the practice of studying it as an undergraduate subject. It takes the reader from first principles in Criminology through to some quite complex ideas and debates. It also offers useful advice on how to grapple with the practical realities of studying this subject. It does both of these in a manner which is always accessible and readable. Dr Tony Kearon, Keele University This is a superb text for the [undergraduate] audience intended. The writing is clear, difficult concepts are explained well, criticality is encouraged, the signposting is adequate and exercises are provided to embed learning. An excellent book overall, and one that deserves wide readership. Peter Hamerton Criminology is part of an exciting new series from SAGE.

Criminology is in a period of much theoretical ferment. Older theories have been revitalized, and newer theories have been set forth. The very richness of our thinking about crime, however, leads to questions about the relative merits of these competing paradigms. Accordingly, in this volume advocates of prominent theories are asked to "take stock" of their perspectives. Their challenge is to assess the empirical status of their theory and to map out future directions for theoretical development. The volume begins with an assessment of three perspectives that have long been at the core of criminology: social learning theory, control theory, and strain theory. Drawing on these traditions, two major contemporary macro-level theories of crime have emerged and are here reviewed: institutional-anomie theory and collective efficacy theory. Critical criminology has yielded diverse contributions discussed in essays on feminist theories, radical criminology, peacemaking criminology, and the effects of racial segregation. The volume includes chapters examining Moffitt's insights on life-course persistent/adolescent-limited anti-social behavior and Sampson and Laub's life-course theory of crime. In addition, David Farrington provides a comprehensive assessment of the adequacy of the leading developmental and life-course theories of crime. Finally, Taking Stock presents essays that review the status of perspectives that have direct implications for the use of criminological knowledge to control crime. Taken together, these chapters provide a comprehensive update of the field's leading theories of crime. The volume will be of interest to criminological scholars and will be ideal for classroom use in courses reviewing contemporary theories of criminal behavior.
