Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This is the substantially updated and revised new edition of the popular Handbook of Criminology. The book is a major reference work in a subject area which lacked such a text for many years before the Handbook was published. It combines the talents of an unusually powerful group of writerswho together cover the entire spectrum of subjects now referred to collectively as "criminology". From the history of the discipline and its present organisation in the UK, the book goes on to deal with topics as diverse as policing, alcohol and crime, juvenile crime, crime statistics, drugs andcrime, custodial and non-custodial sentences, prisons, victims, and the organisation of professional crime in Britain. Altogether, it constitutes the most comprehensive and up-to-date single volume reference and text in the subject. As such, it will be essential reading for all teachers and studentsof criminology, as well as many professionals working in the criminal justice system.
