5.0 out of 5 stars A great primer on Criminology
This book was required as part of an "Intro to Criminology" course at a local community college. The course relied 100% on this book, and I can now see why. The authors skillfully survey the field of criminology in a relevant and easy to read manner. The book was recently updated, so the examples presented brought the concepts to real-life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unserstandable and Thorough, May 4, 2011
This review is from: Criminology: The Core, 4th Edition (Paperback)
Many books on criminology can overwhelm you with information. This makes it very difficult to finish a book and to grasp the information it contains. However the author did a great job at presenting the information in a readable format. It was easy to comprehend and recall. It was full of real life examples which helps the material seem more relevant and useable.

1.0 out of 5 stars but I'll be glad to get rid of this one, July 8, 2014
This review is from: Criminology: The Core, 4th Edition (Paperback)
This book is inaccurate in the sense that it is incomplete and full of partial explanations. While I understand that this is meant to be an introduction to the topic of criminology, I fail to see how partial (and frequently invalidated) explanations accomplish an accurate introduction.
I normally wish to keep my textbooks for future reference, but I'll be glad to get rid of this one. It wouldn't be a good reference anyway.

This review is from: Criminology: The Core, 4th Edition (Paperback)
As far as college textbooks go this wasn't that bad. Not too boring or too much information packed into one paragraph. Very easy to read and understand.

I recieved the book today (PERFECT TIMING AS I HAVE A QUIZ NEXT WEEK). And the book looks exactly how it was described. You saved me over $30 rather than buy a used book from my bookstore!!!! Thanks again and I definitely will be ordering from you again.

Got this book for my sociology class. It's pretty interesting, we actually have to read 2-3 chapters a week and I've learned quite a few things from this book about criminology that I didn't before.
