Downes and Rock's popular textbook, Understanding Deviance provides the reader with an indispensable guide to criminological theory. It sympathetically outlines the principal theories of crime and rule-breaking, discussing them chronologically, and placing them in their European and North American contexts, confronting major criticisms that have been voiced against them, and constructing defences where appropriate.
The book has been thoroughly revised and brought up to date to include new issues of crime, deviance and theory in the early twenty-first century, and includes summaries of cultural criminology and the work of Laub and Sampson, and Gottfredson and Hirschi, on control theory.

This book investigates the reasons for the AU’s emerging resistance and concludes that, while the AU is not averse to individual criminal accountability for perpetrators of gross violations of human rights in the Region, its cooperation with the international criminal justice may continue to be adversely affected by: (1) the involvement of the West in armed conflicts in Africa; (2) selectivity and exclusion in the administration of international criminal justice; (3) the UNSC’s non-intervention to prevent humanitarian disaster during conflicts in the African region; and (4) improper timing of indictments and lack of recognition of traditional African conflict resolution mechanisms as an integral part of the body of international criminal accountability.
