This book has some very interesting theories which are well presented. The variety of issues covered enable this text to be useful with Equality and Diversity units as well as sociology.
A very interesting text, which offers an up to date analysis of biological perspectives on criminality It will assist learners who wish to explore this specific area in greater depth for their assignments. There are certainly aspects I will be incorporating into the Youth Justice module providing a contrast to the sociological explanations of youth crime.
A fascinating read, but very skewed towards a biological reading of criminality
A very well organised, up to date book on the explanations of crime
Another text for students to extend their additional reading to support their assignment work.
This will add to the material already delivered in a supportive way as it brings more in depth, modern studies of the traditional explanations of crime.
Did not fit my purposes for a sociological perspective
