CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

Criminal Lives: Family Life, Employment, and Offending uses historical data to directly address modern criminological debates. There is currently a huge growth of interest in histories of crime, and intellectual conversations and connections between historians and criminologists are becoming much more frequent. However, a published work which uses historical data to this extent is rare. This book's aim is to draw a wide audience from the worlds of criminology, history, and social policy and engage in a genuinely interdisciplinary debate.

Criminal Lives: Family Life, Employment, and Offending addresses a number of important questions about offenders' persistence in, or desistance from, crime and questions the current theoretical frameworks that are given to explain why some people stop, or slow down, their offending, and why offenders' children become involved in crime.
