Hello all,

I have just finished my first year studying BSc Criminology. Throughout my year of work, I found myself struggling to efficiently complete coursework or submit essays because I didn't fully understand my lecturers during seminars or lectures.

I was wondering what comprehensive books people found easy to read and extremely helpful for Criminology? I own 'Criminology (Third Edition) by Tim Newburn' which everyone gives praise for, however I find it rather difficult to comprehend his writing and work.

Does anyone here have any examples of any extensive Criminology books for undergraduates that are an easy/blissful read?

Thank you for reading and/or replying.

Hi,

I am an MSc Criminal Justice and Criminology student.

I would say that Criminology by Stephen Jones, now in its 6th edition is quite a good book. It is considerably smaller that the Criminology book by Tim Newburn, but covers a lot of areas such as criminological theory, violent and sexual offending, gender and crime and mental health and crime.

I would also recommend The Criminology and Criminal Justice Companion by Susan Robinson and Tracy Cussen. It provides chapters on academic writing, criminological research, but also gives good overviews of areas such a criminological theory, emerging issues in criminology, victims, etc.

What modules are you due to undertake in year 2? If you have struggled this first year, you will want to start preparing for these as soon as possible.
