Description

For courses in Criminology, Introduction to Criminology, Crime and Delinquency, and Sociology of Crime.

The eleventh edition of Criminology is a lively introduction to the study of crime. As opposed to the “crime-of-the-week” approach common to many other texts, Conklin introduces students to critical issues in the field, such as the way people learn to commit crime, the development of criminal careers, and the organization of criminal behavior. The text is illustrated with copious boxed selections, easy-to-interpret tables and graphs, and dozens of compelling boxed features. While thoroughly researched and authoritative, the text is accessible to students and well-suited for one-semester courses.
