Criminology and Social Policy

Criminology and Social Policy

March 2007 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Criminology and Social Policy systematically examines the relationship between social policy and crime.

In this lively and engaging text, Paul Knepper discusses the difference social policy makes, or can make, in any response to crime. He also considers the contribution of criminology to the debates on major social policy areas, such as housing, education, employment, health and family. The book provides criminology students with an understanding of key social policy issues, and introduces criminological theory to social policy students. It is designed to cover the core components of courses in both of these areas.

Equipped with study aids and guidance on further reading, Criminology and Social Policy is essential for all students of criminology and social policy at undergraduate level.

Dr Paul Knepper is Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Sheffield.
