Criminology Summary

Criminology: A Contemporary Introduction by Tony Murphy

An introductory text for first year criminology students, covering the key questions, debates and theoretical models in the field, as well as themes of inequality, social justice, and human rights, to encourage an international or 'globalised' understanding of crime and justice matters.

  • The causes and prevalence of crime
  • Doing criminological research
  • The social divisions (class, power and inequality) that relate to crime and justice
  • The role of politics and the media
  • Punishment
  • Corporate crime and cybercrime
  • Global justice

All content is supported by case studies on contemporary issues, and free online resources for students and lecturers, consisting of video interviews between the author and academics or practitioners in the field of criminology, addressing key topics outlined in the book and discussing case studies, there will also be multiple-choice questions, lecturer PowerPoint slides, testbank, and links to further reading.

Criminology Reviews

A well-conceived and brilliantly executed textbook. It has tremendous coverage, ranging from theoretical models, measurement and conducting research, to politics, social policy, global justice and human rights. Through succinct and punchy prose Murphy conveys complex ideas with economy and clarity. With thoughtful visuals, well-designed review questions, activities and resources, this engaging book will be a hit with students and teachers alike.


-- Professor Deborah Oxley
This is a particularly well organised text and will serve as a good introduction to criminology for undergraduates and others new to the subject. Thoughtful review questions and activities help students to maintain the learning process, and there is a good focus on the practical problems of criminological research. There is also a welcome emphasis on the global dimensions of criminology: in particular International trafficking networks and the interface between state crime and problems of international human rights enforcement. -- John Lea
