Criminological Perspectives remains the most authoritative collection of criminological classics. Now in its third edition, it has been updated to reflect many of the global risks and harms that contemporary criminology is concerned with. Eugene McLaughlin and John Muncie have successfully navigated a complex theoretical and conceptual landscape and made it intelligible for students and established scholars alike. Criminological Perspectives remains indispensible.

The only indispensible general criminology reader on the market. Comprehensive in its coverage, judicious in its selectivity and organisation, and sophisticated in its contextualising commentaries, McLaughlin and Muncie's substantially revised collection of key and classic readings is becoming something of a classic itself. A truly must have book.

Containing over fifty edited readings on the study of crime and its control, Criminological Perspectives is an essential book for students seeking to develop their knowledge of criminology and its relevance and impact today.
