This volume introduces major theories of crime and criminality for the undergraduate student. It has two unique features: firstly, it emphasizes the social context of theory development, secondly, it makes a link between theoretical notions of crime and changes in social policy concerning crime and criminals. The book begins with early attempts to explain crime through differences in physical or psychological traits.

This book was absolutely amazing to read! I know theory can be boring to many people, but I found it to be so interesting partially due to the way it was presented in this book. It was laid out very nicely and divided into clear sections. I would definitely recommend this book if you are struggling to understand criminological theory.

Decent shape. It was purchased for school, not for recreation. I'm pleased with the purchase. What I liked even more was the low cost. Thank you.

A required course that I am glad to take. This text is advanced and I recommend taking lower level sociology courses in criminology before attempting to read this text. Some of the theories will be familiar, but this text takes them and breaks them down even further. Good buy, and great book!

It came in good condition and all the pages were intact. The book did explain all it's theories but should be bought only if your school makes you.
