Criminological Theory: Past to Present--Essential Readings is a comprehensive reader that exposes students to both classic and contemporary theories of crime. Editors Francis T. Cullen, Robert Agnew, and Pamela Wilcox provide accessible yet detailed introductions, preparing students for what they are about to read and placing each selection in context. The fifth edition includes a new Part XIV, entitled "Paying Attention to Race: Theoretical Developments," and new readings covering biology and crime, defensible space, decision-making by criminals, environmental corrections, and the relationship between race, racism, and crime.

Review:


"The approach of the book is cross-disciplinary, comprehensive, and historically based. It is the best out there."--Sharon C. Ostrow, Temple University


"If you want to enrich [this course] for your criminological theory students, adopt this book."--Judith Kirwan Kelley, Curry College


"Criminological Theory is an excellent compendium of selections by many of the major theorists in the discipline. It covers a wide range of theories both historically and conceptually."--Marvin D. Krohn, University of Florida


"Long a classic, Criminological Theory gets better with each new edition, none better than this one. The book is a must read for those concerned with the nature and effects of crime and social deviance. But I think it is just as important for all--whether students, scholars, or policy makers--who are rightly puzzled by the necessary troubles of life in complex societies."--Charles Lemert, Senior Fellow, Center for Comparative Research, Yale University; author and editor of Social Theory: the Multicultural, Global, and Classical Readings
