Introduction to Criminology
A Text/readerBook - 2008
"Combining the didactic approach of a textbook with critical research articles, Introduction to Criminology provides a new spin on the core textbook format. Organized like a more traditional introductory criminology text, this Text/Reader is divided into 14 sections that contain all the usual topics taught in an introduction to criminology course. After an overview, each section has an introductory "mini-chapter" that provides coverage of key concepts, developments, controversial issues, and research in the field. These authored introductions are followed by original research articles. The readings were written by criminology experts and often have a policy orientation that will help address student interest in the "so what?" application of theory."--BOOK JACKET.
