Recenzijos

For the uninitiated, any academic subject can appear to be written in its own private language or code. Many of the words are familiar, but certain phrases or concepts can seem alien. Criminology is no different having borrowed from a range of disciplines and added its own ideas and theories for good measure. The Sage Dictionary of Criminology is invaluable for those moments when you are not quite sure what something means or where it fits in. The new Fourth Edition brings together an impressive list of contributors who can guide the reader through the various criminologies - both old and new - that compete for our attention. There are some classic ideas covered, but this new edition is fully updated covering new and exciting thinking and theoretical development. The editors Eugene McLaughlin and John Muncie have produced an excellent resource that anyone working within criminology would benefit from having within easy reach. -- Andrew Millie This revised Sage Dictionary of Criminology remains the most authoritative and indispensable resource for scholars and students around the world. A terrific book that continues to inspire us all. -- Maggy Lee The Sage Dictionary of Criminology is the must have compendium of criminological concepts. Rigorously researched and intricate in its analyses, the Sage Dictionary provides the reader with an authoritative account of the evolution of criminological terminology, insights and debates. An invaluable resource for students and scholars alike. -- David Gadd
