Criminology by James Treadwell

Book Description

'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.Developed as accessible reference tools, SAGE Course Companions offer an introduction to the subject and encourage students to extend their understanding of key concepts, issues and debates. Criminology is designed to give those new to the study of criminology, criminal justice and the sociology of deviance a comprehensive overview of the subject matter. It can be used as an introduction to the subject and referred to throughout the degree for tips and revision guidance.Criminology is designed to complement, rather than replace, existing textbooks for the course, and will provide: - Helpful summaries of the course curriculum to aid exam revision and essay planning - Key summaries of the approach taken by the main textbooks on the course - Guidance on the essential study skills required to pass the course - Help with developing critical thinking - Route-maps to aid the development of wider learning above and beyond the textbook - Pointers to success in course exams and written assessment exercises - A tutor's-eye view of what course examiners are looking for - An insider's view of what key course concepts are really all about SAGE Course Companions are much more than revision guides for undergraduate. They are an essential tool to success in undergraduate courses, enriching the learning experience and developing students' understanding.
