This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to criminological theory for students taking courses in criminology at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The text is divided into three parts,  addressing ideal type models of criminal behaviour the rational actor, predestined actor, and victimised actor models. Within these the various criminological theories are located chronologically in the context of one of these different traditions, and the strengths and weaknesses of each theory and model are clearly identified. The new edition features comprehensive coverage of recent developments in criminology including situation action theory, desistance theory, peacemaking criminology, as well as Loïc Wacquant’s thesis of the penal society. Pedagogical features include chapter summaries, critical thinking questions and a full glossary of terms and theories.

Roger Hopkins-Burke is Principal Lecturer in Criminology at Nottingham Trent University, where he currently delivers criminological theory and juvenile justice modules to undergraduates. His numerous publications include Zero Tolerance Policing (Perpetuity Press, 1998) and Hard Cop/Soft Cop (Willan Press, 2004).
