This book provides an overview and critical engagement with the literature on crime. The book focuses on modern Britain since the nineteenth century, covering all aspects of crime - from those committed on the street and within the home, to offences and abuse conducted on an internationalscale. Bringing together authors of different areas of specialist expertise, the book synthesises a large amount of material into a concise, accessible and attractive textbook, and locates the multi-faceted dimension of crime in everyday life firmly within historical, contemporary, and comparativecontexts.
