Description

Introduction to Criminology: A Text/Reader, Fourth Edition offers you a unique, comprehensive, interdisciplinary introduction to the study of criminology. Anthony Walsh and Craig Hemmens provide the best of both worlds―a brief, authored text with carefully selected and edited accompanying readings. Covering both classic and contemporary research in criminology, each reading shows students how to use current research to better understand criminal behavior. Students also gain an interdisciplinary perspective of crime and criminality by exploring the latest theories, concepts, and research from sociology, psychology, genetics, evolutionary biology, and the neurosciences.

New to the Fourth Edition:

  • Over 50% new journal articles provide insight into the latest findings in criminology on topics such as human trafficking, rural crime, recidivism, the abuse of technology in domestic violence and stalking, cyber attacks, and drug use.
  • New Theory in Action case studies present compelling examples of critical issues such as emotion and rationality, oppositional culture, self-control, genetics and neuroscience, and terrorism.
  • A stronger focus on connecting theory to criminal acts enables you to see how the substantive sections (violent crime, property crime, serial killing, white-collar crime, and others) fit in with the section on theory.
  • Statistics, graphs, and tables have all been updated to demonstrate the most recent trends in criminology.
