A Blackpool expert on criminology is due to have his first book published.

Dr Phil Johnson, who l is the Course Leader for BA (Hons) Criminology at the University Centre at Blackburn College will have his book entitled Criminology published on Monday.

The text is co-authored by Professor Stephen Case from Loughborough University, David Manlow from the University of Westminster, Professor Roger Smith from Durham University and Professor Katherine Williams, from Aberystwyth University.

Dr Johnson was invited by Professor Stephen Case to become a co-author for the text – lending his experience particularly to the graduate employability and criminal justice sections.

Dr Johnson said: “The main point of the book is to encourage undergraduates to recognise that at university, they are responsible for producing knowledge not just consuming it.

“This focus on higher-level skills can equip the reader with the tools they need for developing a sustainable career in the justice sector.”
