About the Book:

Described by the learned editor of this new Routledge collection as ‘both a subfield and a fundamental approach to criminological inquiry’, theoretical criminology is concerned with debates about foundational analytical concepts: what is crime? What is punishment? It also seeks to explain outcomes: what causes crime? What is the effect of punishment? What makes a criminal?
