The most accessible and comprehensive book for criminological theory courses available today
“Personally, I think a text like this is long overdue. The inclusion of both material summarizing the theories and additional readings is important."— Shannon M. Barton, Indiana State University
Criminological Theory: A Text/Reader provides the best of both worlds—substantial but brief authored sections on all of the major course topics, followed by carefully edited, policy-oriented, original research articles covering criminological theory from past to present and beyond. The 39 articles reflect both classic studies and state-of-the-art research.
