This time-tested text continues to gives students a broad context in which to study the history, theories, and responses to crime and criminology, using a unique blend of both social science and legal research. The only criminology text to include legal case excerpts to demonstrate the role of the courts in the reformation of the criminal justice system, this book gives readers a solid understanding of the integral relationship between the law and theories of criminal behavior. Current topics are explored beyond the headlines, examining the implications of our governing theories and policies.
