Summary

The majority of criminology textbooks currently on the market are either comprehensive texts, or smaller texts that take a selective and too narrow a focus only on some areas of criminology at the expense of others. Comprehensive texts are becoming increasingly more expensiveáandáthere is a market for a core textbook in that covers the essential and major topics in a concise manner at a lower price for students.áCriminology: The Essentialsápresents an overview of the major subject areas in criminology covering the most up to date advances in theory and research. The book will include special features that engage the reader in thinking critically about the subjects. Features and Benefits:á- Each chapter beginning with a vignette designed to pull students into the material and provideámotivation for discussion.á- End of chapter Policy and Prevention sections describe the implications of each theoretical perspective.- End of chapter SummarizingáTheories tables in the theory chapters.- áThis textbook will be shorter than a hardback comprehensive text full of colored pictures, and thus less expensive. -áThe book's brevity and price will áallow instructors to use it either as theásole textbook or as the core textbook supplemented with other titles.- The author is known for his excellent writing and cutting edge research.- Accompanying instructor and student study sites will provide ample resources and support.
