This is not just a book on the present state and possible prospects of our understanding of crime, criminals and our responses to both. However greatly the professional criminologists might benefit from the authors' illuminating insights and the new cognitive vistas their investigations have opened, the impact of this book may well stretch far beyond the realm of criminology proper and mark a watershed in the progress of social study as such.
Some of my students struggled to get their heads around this particular perspective but this outlines the theory really well and is a contemporary piece of literature I have advised students to use.
This well written book provides students with many of the tensions around current criminological thinking.
A well written text with illustrations and examples that combine theory and practice across a range of disciplines. Very useful for students and indeed teachers interested in crime, media, culture and social theory.
One of the best texts on the subject.
A praiseworthy attempt to understand and develop an overview of complex societies in which social and cultural realities are endlessly interwoven.
Good book that fits our course (Cultural Criminology) very well.
This is a good book that discusses the links between cultural studies and criminology and, more interestingly, explains the difference between the study of media as a product for understanding deviance, and the study of media and the audience as producer(s) of culture. In parts, its a bit dense for first year undergraduates, but its nevertheless an important addition as it theoretically contextualises the role of media in criminology.
Easy to digest, good analysis of a range of issues discussed within Criminology.
Cultural Criminology should be read by academics and students with an interest in crime, media, culture and social theory.
Very interesting book that I recommended to students. Well written, it is a great source on cultural criminology for any student.
This is a excellent introduction to cultural criminology which combines theory with practice.
A very good text which covers an important section of the course, but not suitable as a general text which covers all material. This should not detract from the value of the book which I would highly recommend to level 2/3 undergrads and postgrad students.
