Abstract

That there are no universally accepted definitions of the terms ‘crime’ and ‘deviance’ within the field of criminology may surprise those with only a passing acquaintance with it. Instead, those engaged in the criminological endeavour are faced with a wealth of debate over what intuitively seem like straightforwardly ‘common sense’ notions.
