The new sixth edition of Criminology provides students with a comprehensive analysis of the major criminological theories. Drawing on a wide range of research in order to consider both sociological and psychological explanations of criminal behaviour, Jones poses the important questions, inviting readers to critically engage with the subject. Thoroughly referenced and written in a clear and accessible style, this book provides the firm foundation of
knowledge that students need to develop a strong and secure understanding of criminological theory.
