Unique in its approach, this book introduces students to criminology by examining broad-based concepts instead of just types of crimes. Using an extensive research base, the author discusses concepts such as social control and neutralization of the law; factors that facilitate crime; criminal careers; and the organization of criminal behavior. Real-life examples and special feature boxes appear throughout and address crime and the media, crime on campus, cross-cultural perspectives and critical issues. Figures, tables and in-depth review questions are included and help students understand the common social process among all types of crime.
