This leading text for courses in Criminology is known for its lucid style, student-oriented approach, and its interdisciplinary global perspective. The text is available in two versions, one with, and the other without coverage of the criminal justice system. For schools that retain the traditional criminology course, which includes criminological coverage of criminal justice, Criminology and the Criminal Justice System, Fourth Edition, is the ideal text. For schools that offer a separate introductory course in criminal justice, Criminology, Fourth Edition, is the appropriate text. Criminology omits Part IV, "A Criminological Approach to the Criminal Justice System."
With the text comes PowerWeb, a password-protected course-specific Web site that offers current articles about criminology(refereed and selected by criminology instructors), research tools, refereed Web links, student study tools, and interactive exercises. The free, interactive student CD-ROM, "Making the Grade," features chapter-by-chapter quizzes (with feedback), a study skills primer, an Internet guide, and much more.
