This final chapter summarises the argument contained in the book and offers some advice to readers on how the book should be utilised. The chapter highlights what this book has tried to do and explains the threefold aim: firstly, to highlight more directly than has been done so before in our field how causal reasoning has shaped and influenced criminological thought; secondly, to introduce my learned and esteemed colleagues, as well as our eager students, to the complexity involved in, and the problems that exist when, formulating a theory of causation; and, lastly, how these problems manifest and how they may be overcome by thinking more clearly about the logic utilised when theorising in this way.
