About the Book

Criminology: The Essentials presents a well-written overview of the major theoretical perspectives and crime types discussed in most introductory criminology classes. It covers the most up-to-date theories and research in a concise manner in a cost-effective format. Each chapter in the book includes chapter-opening vignettes, interesting photos, many tables and figures to engage readers’ interest. In the often-difficult theory chapters are concluding Policy and Prevention sections and summary tables which compare and contrast the theories to promote a deep understanding of the concepts presented.
