Summary

This text offers a student-friendly, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to the study of criminology.

 

Criminology Today: An Integrative Introduction, 7e, continues to offer students a clear, contemporary, and comprehensive introduction to criminology that encourages critical thinking about the causes of crime and crime-prevention strategies. The text’s hallmark thematic approach of social problems versus social responsibility (Is crime a matter of individual responsibility or a symptom of a dysfunctional society?) prompts students to think critically about the causes of crime and helps them see the link between crime theories and crime policies.

 

Teaching and Learning

 

This comprehensive text addresses the poignant question of how security and freedom interface in an age of increasing globalism. It provides:

  • Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of important topics: Such as research methods, criminology and social policy, white collar crime and terrorism
  • Latest developments in the field: Covering the ways in which crime and criminals have changed in ways that few people had previously imagined would occur, and how these changes hold considerable significance for each one of us and for our nation as a whole
  • Unparalleled pedagogical features: Gives students the tools to master key concepts faster and more effectively, and provides support for instructors
