Description: With its unique blend of both social science and legal research, this time-tested text by leading scholar and author Sue Titus Reid continues to gives students a broad context in which to study the history, theories, and responses to crime and criminology. Throughout, Reid provides students with a solid understanding of the integral relationship between the law and theories of criminal behavior; she explores many timely topics well beyond simple headlines, examining the implications of our governing theories and policies. The twelfth edition incorporates coverage of the latest U.S. Supreme Court decisions, including those that the Court will hear during its 2007-2008 term. It also integrates expanded and strengthened coverage of theory, including recent empirical research and its applications. New to the Twelfth Edition: * Expanded coverage of issues of gender, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status * "Global Focus" boxes highlight global and international issues * Updated "Media Focus" boxes highlight current cases in the media * The entire book has been streamlined, thoroughly revised, and updated--please contact your Oxford University Press sales representative for a list of chapter-by-chapter changes. Crime and Criminology, Twelfth Edition, continues to be a distinguished and unparalleled resource for criminology courses.
