This introductory primer on criminological theory provides an accessible discussion of the major theories of crime, delinquency, social deviance, and social control with an objective and neutral approach.

 

The various theories are covered in a systematic fashion. After providing a straightforward explanation of each theory's fundamental assumptions and concepts, along with exampling narrative drawn from both real-world current events and fictitious scenarios, major criticisms are addressed. The implications of each theory for criminal and juvenile justice strategies and policy (e.g., deterrence vs. rehabilitation, crime prevention, crime prediction) are also considered.

I purchased this format but soon realized that using the nook reader was not for me. I ended up buying the book so I would have a better reference when I need to look up certain theories. Guess I need to learn how to work the IPAD better.

This is a smaller book than I thought it was going to be full of very interesting, useful information. I have two more chapters to read and am eager to finish them. I honestly can relate to much of what is being taught through the text and happy with my purchase and the amount of information in the text :)

Great literature, presented in a clear and concise manner. Actually fun to read, which is rare in academic materials- well, in my experience anyways...
