Drugs and Crime: Theories and Practices

Richard Hammersley

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    This thought–provoking book argues that much current thinking about drugs and crime is simplistic and misguided, because it fails to take into account the complex social and psychological contexts that underpin the relationship between drug or alcohol problems and crime. In clear and accessible language, it reviews existing explanations of the links between drugs and crime, and assesses the practical approaches currently being taken to tackle the problems involved.
