Summary
"The SAGE Handbook of Criminological Theory enables readers to engage with the key theoretical perspectives that are constitutive of the discipline at the beginning of the twenty-first century." "In addition, the Handbook features a substantive introduction by the editors reviewing the present state of criminological knowledge and identifying the intellectual challenges that will delineate the discipline's future development." "The SAGE Handbook of Criminological Theory is an indispensable, comprehensive, international resource for libraries and scholars of all levels studying the rapidly developing, interdisciplinary field of criminology." "Fòr any criminologist looking to make sense of recent developments in the field, this is the go-to book. In essays by leading specialists, it provides the latest updates on traditional theories whilst charting new directions. It also offers interpretive frameworks for criminology's current flux and fragmentation and closely examines relationships among theory, policy, and criminal justice practice. Invaluable and indispensable!' Professor Nicole Rafter, Northeastern University" "Th̀e SAGE Handbook of Criminological Theory provides an authoritative collection of original essays on the vibrant if often discordant theoretical perspectives in the "rendez-vous" field of study that is contemporary criminology. The carefully crafted chapters are an invaluable resource for both the advanced student of criminology and for teachers and researchers of the subject. It is likely to become very rapidly a "must-have" handbook for all those interested in pursuing criminology as a vocation.' Professor Gordon Hughes, Cardiff University"--Jacket
