Summary

CrimComics offers a new way to approach criminological theory by engaging students with impactful, highly visual illustrated texts. Each CrimComics Issue traces the development of the theory--placing it in social and political context--and demonstrates its application to the real world. The last page of each Issue features review questions and key terms.

Issue 4, Social Disorganization Theory, introduces students to sociological, community-based theories that analyze key aspects of neighborhood collectives like social disorganization, collective efficacy, and street culture in an effort to understand crime. Other issues include Issue 1: Origins of Criminology, Issue 2: Biology and Criminality, and Issue 3: Classical and Neoclassical Criminology.
