He is the author or editor of over 35 books, including: Permission and Regulation: Law and Morals in Post-war Britain (Routledge, 1991); The Future of Policing (with Rod Morgan, 1997); Private Security and Public Policing (with Trevor Jones, 1998); Policy Transfer and Criminal Justice (with Trevor Jones, 2007); Handbook of Policing (2008); and Key Readings in Criminology (2009). Tim Newburn’s bestselling Criminology provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction for students of the subject, providing the basis for all undergraduate degree courses or modules, and for new postgraduates, in Criminology. From murder to theft to drug gangs, crime and criminal justice affect the lives of millions of people worldwide.
