About this item

The Handbook of Measurement Issues in Criminology and Criminal Justice presents a collection of multidisciplinary readings that explore the most current techniques, procedures, and challenges relating to the measurement of criminology and criminal justice from a global perspective.

Chapters are contributed from a range of experts across a variety of disciplines and include top criminologists as well as emerging scholars. Initial readings focus on the measurement of criminal typologies and include coverage of such topics as violent crime, cybercrime, sexual offending behavior, white-collar crime, human trafficking, and hate crime. The next readings cover offenders and victimization: gang crime, gendered pathways to crime, rehab and treatment programming, and various victimization studies. The most updated findings on criminal justice organizations and outcomes are covered next, and address such topics as community policing, courts and criminal processing, sentencing outcomes, correctional interventions, cost of crime, racial profiling, and others. A final set of readings go into specialized measurement techniques that deal with self-reported crime, the challenges of conducting prison interviews, spatial analyses of crime, and more. All readings feature summaries of the most recent data collection efforts relating to the topic discussed, along with an overview of current methodological work and its challenges and a look at the most promising data collection and measurement techniques on the horizon in this area.

With its global scope and remarkable breadth of topic coverage, The Handbook of Measurement Issues in Criminology and Criminal Justice is an essential resource for practitioners and students interested in all aspects of this increasingly important field.
