This well-written overview of the major theoretical perspectives and crime types covered in most introductory criminology courses covers the most up-to-date theories and research of the field in a concise, cost-effective format. Each chapter includes chapter-opening vignettes, photos, case studies, and tables and figures to engage student interest. In the often-difficult theory chapters, summary tables that compare and contrast theories and Concluding Policy and Prevention sections promote a deep understanding of criminological concepts.
