The 2nd edition of Introduction to Criminological Thought has been comprehensive revised and updated. It reports on new and important developments in criminology in both policy and practice specifically focussed on and drawing on New Zealand context and experience. The text critically examines a range of issues of significant and topical concern including the nature and extent of crime in New Zealand; the disproportionate representation of Maori and other ethnic minorities in the criminal justice system; the recent increases in corporate fraud and other 'harms'; and those contemporary policies and strategies to reduce the extent and severity of crime and criminal behaviour. Principally designed for undergraduate students in criminology; this text will also be of interest to those who are studying crime and criminal justice, those with a relevant professional or occupational association and those more generally interested in crime and the way society responds to it.
