wonderful criminology book March 14, 2011
I think this textbook is awesome because it has tons of extras for fun learning instead of just boring same old same old facts. This a great textbook that takes you through many theories, statistics, stories and the affect of criminal behavior in the present as well as the past. A must have if you are interested in the study of sociology, criminology or both.
The overall use of this textbook is in an easy-to-read format.
