Preparing students for careers in the Canadian criminal justice system

Canadian Criminology Today offers a clear, contemporary, and comprehensive introduction to criminology that encourages students to think critically about the causes of crime and the outcomes of crime-prevention strategies. Throughout the text, Schmalleger and Volk use plentiful examples and current case studies to present the consequences of criminological theory for social policy and the practical issues associated with crime control. Special attention is paid to both Canadian issues and emerging forms of criminality worldwide to ensure students are well prepared for future careers in the Canadian criminal justice system.
