For most orthodox criminologists the operative meaning of the word ‘crime’ is relatively straightforward: crime is murder, rape, robbery, burglary, theft, drug offenses and maybe fraud. While most criminologists might subscribe to a somewhat broader definition of crime as ‘an act in violation of law’, in practice few offenses appear in the criminological literature other than routine street crimes.
