Summary Crime and Justice: A Guide to Criminology has been for many years a leading Australian textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students approaching this field of study for the first time. The contributors are well known research-active academics in Australia who contribute to the criminological debate at a national and international level.Fully revised and updated, this fifth edition offers a comprehensive guide to criminal justice and criminology that is well suited to a two or three-semester approach. It covers a wide range of topics including: different forms of crimes – from street crime to state crime and international crimes; who commits crimes and who are the victims of crimes; and how society responds to crime. It also includes a dedicated chapter on ‘criminology study skills’ that will be of benefit to students across their studies. This book offers a balance between the critical and administrative criminological traditions, adding to the discourse of crime and justice in the 21st century.
