Criminology: some concluding thoughts

This book began by inviting you to a party. Those who were seduced by this invitation and are still with us might be feeling rather disappointed by now. Perhaps anticipating party hats, games and laughter, readers have been taken aside by two rather serious academics who proceeded to ask a lot of rather difficult questions. Thankfully, parties don’t oftenturn out like that. We hope that those who are still reading will agree that those questions, although difficult, are often important and interesting ones.
