This lively anthology brings together many of the best theoretical essays on crime causation published in the American Society of Criminology's journal Criminology. In The Criminology Theory Reader, Stuart Henry and Werner Einstadter have edited key articles into concise, student-friendly readings without compromising the essays' original integrity. The book captures the essence and diversity of thinking about crime by including representative articles from the major theoretical perspectives: classical and rational choice, biological and psychological, ecology, strain and subcultural, social learning and differential association, neutralization and social control, labeling and social constructionist, and Marxist and critical theory.

The Criminology Theory Reader also contains cutting-edge thinking on feminist theory, postmodernist, constitutive, and integrated approaches. The overview essay and helpful section introductions guide students through the core debates. The following respected theorists are among the contributing authors: Beirne, Clarke, Stark, Bursik, Felson, Akers, Laub, Agnew, Simpson, Chambliss, Melossi, Feeley, Friedrichs, Thornberry, Hirschi, Yeager, Bernard, and Rafter.

The Criminology Theory Reader is the perfect reference for those interested in the explanations of crime and criminality.

About the Author:

Professor Stuart Henry is in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology at Eastern Michigan University. Together with Professor Emeritus Werner Einstadter, he hasauthored numerous books on crime and deviance, including Criminological Theory: An Analysis of Its Underlying Assumptions.

Review:

"Are they needed? To be sure. The Darwinian industry, industrious though it is, has failed to provide texts of more than a handful of Darwin's books. If you want to know what Darwin said about barnacles (still an essential reference to cirripedists, apart from any historical importance) you are forced to search shelves, or wait while someone does it for you; some have been in print for a century; various reprints have appeared and since vanished."
-Eric Korn, "Times Literary Supplement"
