An Introduction

Available with:


September 2022 | 424 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Engaged Criminology invites students to learn and think like a criminologist by adopting an active learning approach—and by making that approach achievable across classroom settings. Its overarching goal is to develop the learner’s criminological imagination, encouraging them to “see the general in the particular” and understand individual experiences with crime and punishment as residing at the intersection of history and biography. It accomplishes this by incorporate real-life examples and hands-on activities that get students doing criminology rather than just retaining definitions

This book asks students to interrogate inequalities, consider unintended consequences, appreciate the limitations of our knowledge, and envision solutions, all while highlighting the role of systemic inequalities as predictors and outcomes of criminal conduct and punishment.

Within Engaged Criminology, you will find yourself with a ready supply of exciting strategies for generating student engagement and fostering critical interaction with the most central ideas in contemporary criminology.
