Crime is one of the most serious problems facing South Africa today. As we grapple with the fear and reality of crime, we ask questions like "What is crime?" and "What motivates people to become involved in crime?" The answers to these questions do not lie in speculation, myth or unfounded theory, but rather in the scientific study of crime and criminality, and their impact on the individual and society.

The second edition of A Southern African Perspective on Fundamental Criminology provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental elements of criminology. The book aims to explain the nature and extent of crime, the reactions to crime, the impact of crime, reasons that crime occurs and ways in which we can deal with offenders. Criminology in practice is covered, in addition to highlighting the functioning of the criminal justice system. This book is suitable for practitioners, academia and students who aim to work in the field of criminology and related sub-disciplines.

Features
