Description:

Designed for undergraduate criminology courses, this book includes the latest theoretical and empirical works, and maintains a blance between theory and research. It actively involves students in the literature of the discipline; presents the field in a format that is accessible, understandable, and enjoyable; and is edited by well-known scholars who are experienced researchers and teachers. The readings in this anthology have been very carefully edited and pruned by the editors so that undergraduate students can easily read them without getting bogged down or confused and lost in the technical, methodological details. Also included are discussion and writing questions at the end of each reading to prompt students to think critically about the material.
