New Horizons in Criminology series

New Horizons in Criminology provides concise authoritative texts in criminology which reflect cutting edge thought and theoretical development with an international scope. Divided into eight chapters, these short accessible texts are written so that the non-specialist academic, student or practitioner can understand them by explaining principles and developments clearly before going deeper into the subject.

Key Themes in Policing series

Key Themes in Policing is a new textbook series that is designed to fill a growing need for titles which reflect the importance of incorporating ‘research informed-policing’ and engaging with evidence-based policing within Higher Education curricula. It will reflect upon the changing landscape of contemporary policing as it becomes more politicised, professionalised and scrutinised, and draw out both change and continuities in its themes.
