Crime and Society is a dedicated analysis of the major forms of crime which affect society today.

An explanation of the key issues then follows and the chapter concludes with an examination of contemporary research findings. Crime and Society covers all major new topics, including those not generally seen in texts in this area, for example, regulation of practice and whistle blowing. The book is concise and written especially for the needs of undergraduate students Crime and Society covers all the usual areas of crime as well as major new topics not generally seen in texts in this area, for example, environmental crime and public order offences
