What is the role and value of criminology in a democratic society? How do, and how should, its practitioners engage with politics and public policy? How can criminology find a voice in an agitated, insecure and intensely mediated world in which crime and punishment loom large in government agendas and public discourse? What collective good do we want criminological enquiry to promote? In addressing these questions, Ian Loader and Richard Sparks offer a sociological account of how criminologists understand their craft and position themselves in relation to social and political controversies about crime, whether as scientific experts, policy advisors, governmental players, social movement theorists, or lonely prophets. They examine the conditions under which these diverse commitments and affiliations arose, and gained or lost credibility and influence. This forms the basis for a timely articulation of the idea that criminology’s overarching public purpose is to contribute to a better politics of crime and its regulation. Public Criminology? offers an original and provocative account of the condition of, and prospects for, criminology which will be of interest not only to those who work in the fields of crime, security and punishment, but to anyone interested in the vexed relationship between social science, public policy and politics.

Criminology in Canada highlights the dynamism and diversity in the field of Criminology, making the field come alive to students. The experienced author team of Larry J. Siegel and Chris McCormick have provided a fair and unbiased introduction to criminological theory and criminal justice policy, providing the facts and tools needed to think critically about key issues in criminology. The text addresses the question of why we behave the way we do. What causes one person to become violent, while another channels his or her energy into work, school, and family? Is behaviour a function of personal characteristics, or of upbringing and experiences? Is it influenced by culture or environment, or is it a combination? The text uses a typology-based approach to discuss these difficult questions. Carefully structured to cover relevant material in a comprehensive, balanced, and objective fashion, the text is a favourite among students and teachers alike. Readers will find their learning experience is enhanced by many engaging study aids and engaging cases. Criminology in Canada, 6th edition has been completely updated to reflect the most recent evolution of crime theory, and to illustrate the dynamic nature of criminology through the inclusion of major research studies, Supreme Court rulings, and governmental policy.

Criminology, or the study of crime, has developed rapidly as a subject in recent years, while crime and the problem of how to respond to it have become major concerns for society as a whole. This book provides a succinct, highly readable - and much needed - introduction to criminology for those who want to learn more, whether they are already studying the subject, thinking of doing so, or just interested to discover what criminology is about. Introducing Criminology begins by asking basic questions: what is crime? what is criminology?, before examining the ways in which crime has been studied, and looking at the main approaches and schools of thought within criminology and how these have been developed. The authors focus particularly upon attempts to understand and explain crime by the disciplines of psychology and sociology, and consider also the impact of feminist and postmodern thought on the development of the subject. In the second part of the book the authors take three very different topics to illustrate themes raised in the first half of the book, exploring the particular issues raised by each topic, and showing how criminologists have gone about their work.
