Summary: "A cosmopolitan collection characterized by freshness of perspective. Critical sociological insight on crime at its best." John Braithwaite, Australian National University "If The Blackwell Companion to Criminology is read widely and carefully, and absorbed thoroughly - as it most certainly should be - it will shake criminology out of its intellectual sloth and parochialism." Gilbert Geis, University of California "The Blackwell Companion to Criminology is a comprehensive reference work designed for those interested in the study of crime, and its causes, effects, trends, and institutions... Taken together, this edited book is a welcome contribution, and essential reading for those studying elements of criminology and criminal justice." The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice "Many of these essays are brimming with powerful reasoning and vitally informative details … Strengths lie in the analyses of such topics as modern genocide, juvenile crime, female offenders, elite offenders, international outlaw networks, globalization effects on crime trends, and information technologies. Also beneficial are the tightly reasoned critiques of how crime is communicated to the public and targeted by state agencies. As they explore cutting-edge questions in criminology, readers will find sophisticated theoretical scholarship, especially regarding modern and postmodern frameworks, feminism, critical cultural studies, and neo-Marxism … Summing Up: Essential." Choice Choice Outstanding Title "A welcome addition … well written and … generally sophisticated, challenging, and provocative … offers much needed diversity, depth, and breadth … global approach is timely." Criminal Justice Review.
