Reviews

The Routledge Companion to Criminological Theory and Concepts is a great conspectus of the different bloodlines, forms and uses of criminology, prepared by authors recruited from across the globe, many of them the principal experts in the areas they describe. It is, without doubt, remarkably comprehensive, nonpartisan and authoritative, and it will serve as an invaluable vade mecum for anyone engaged in the study of crime. - Paul Rock, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK This Companion will undoubtedly leave its mark on criminology. The editors have brought together a remarkably thorough and comprehensive collection of essays by experts in their respective fields that will not only stand the test of time but at the same time captures the diversity and intellectual excitement of criminology. This is a clear and accessible collection that will enhance the understanding of the discipline by all those who read it: tutors and students alike. This is the 'must have' book for anyone claiming the label 'criminologist'. - Sandra Walklate, Eleanor Rathbone Chair of Sociology, University of Liverpool; Professor of Criminology, Monash University, Australia; and Adjunct Professor School of Justice, Queensland University of Technology, Australia An extraordinary achievement, breathtaking in its scope. A crucial resource, by some of the most insightful thinkers within criminology, that not only surveys what has been achieved but identifies and explores crucial new directions. A criminological milestone that will inspire and guide criminologists for decades to come. - Clifford Shearing, Professor at the University of Cape Town, South Africa; Griffith University, Australia; and Adjunct Professor at the University of Montreal, Canada This intellectual history of criminological theories comes at an important time, when we urgently need to re-think our understandings of deviance, transgression and wrongdoing. This is a generous, robust and wide-ranging collection of essays, and they are accessible, rigorous and critical. Many of these are reassuring contributions from key thinkers, and others represent welcome challenges to the field. - Katherine Biber, Professor of Law, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
