In this newly revised text, Lanier and Henry build upon their critical review of criminology, expanding their coverage of the multifaceted "Crime Prism," white-collar and corporate, new developments in biocriminology, cognitive theory, feminist criminology, and postmodernism. Importantly, they re-frame crime and its control in the context of global interconnectedness, expanded Internet communication and international terrorism since 9/11, and ask: what kind of criminology is needed for the 21st Century? The addition of illustrative comparative real-world examples and vital updates reflecting the latest studies and theoretical developments make this text a necessity for both undergraduate and graduate courses in criminology.
