Description

For courses in Criminology.

Taking a sociological perspective, this book discusses the major theories of crime–from classical theories to new theories such as Cultural Criminology and Peacemaking Criminology. The book offers a balanced presentation–presenting each theory’s social and intellectual heritage, perspective and assumptions and major concepts. This edition includes updates on current crime theories, critical thinking questions at the end of each chapter and additional examples that connect crime theories to real life.
