Summary

This new CORE edition of Siegel's best-selling CRIMINOLOGY, Seventh Edition and CRIMINOLOGY: THEORIES, PATTERNS, AND TYPOLOGIES, Seventh Edition takes a concise look at criminology and criminological theory. Not just the same book, this version is a complete rewrite, making this a shorter, less expensive alternative to other criminology texts on the market. The material has been carefully structured to cover relevant information in a manageable format and in a presentation that is interesting and contemporary. Siegel continues to incorporate unbiased, high-interest examples on many diverse criminology issues that characterize its interdisciplinary nature.
