9780199844487: Criminological Theories: Introduction, Evaluation, and Application

With a focus on empirical evaluation and practical application, Criminological Theories: Introduction, Evaluation, and Application, Sixth Edition, helps students draw connections between criminological theory and practical applications.

In clear, engaging language, authors Ronald L. Akers and Christine S. Sellers explore each principal criminological theory using a three-part analysis:

* An Introduction presents a succinct exposition of the theory's central concepts, assertions, and hypotheses.
* Next, an Evaluation provides a detailed critique of the theory, with an emphasis on empirical validity.
* Finally, an Application extends the evaluation to determine each theory's relevance, as well as its potential for controlling and preventing crime and delinquency.

Review:


"Engaging and informative."--Kevin M. Beaver, Florida State University


"Extremely readable and accessible. It is one of the essential books on criminological theory and the first book that I suggest to someone wanting to become familiar with the broad realm of theories of crime and criminality."--Scott Vollum, James Madison University


"The authors do a great job of identifying the key theorists, assumptions, state of research, and policy/programmatic uses for each theory."--David Mackey, Plymouth State University
