Connections among theory, research, and practice are the heart and soul of criminology. This book offers a comprehensive and balanced introduction to criminology, demonstrating the value of understanding the relationships between criminological theory, research, and practice in the study of crime and criminal behavior. Utilising a range of case studies and thought-provoking features, it encourages students to think critically and provides a foundation for understanding criminology as a systematic, theoretically grounded science. It includes:

    • A comprehensive overview of crime in American society, including the nature and meaning of crime and American criminal law as well as the scientific study of crime,
    • A concise, straightforward, and practical approach to the study of the American criminal justice system and its various components, including individual chapters on police, courts, and corrections,
    • An overview of criminological theory, including classical, biological, psychological and sociological approaches,
    • A survey of typologies of criminological behavior including interpersonal violent crimes, property crime, public order crime, organized and white collar crime, state crime, environmental harm and cybercrime,
    • Concluding thoughts exploring challenges facing criminal justice policy and the future of criminological theory.

This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes brand new chapters on corrections, courts, criminal law, law enforcement, and technology and cybercrime. It is packed with useful and instructive features such as themed boxed case studies in every chapter, critical thinking questions, lists of further reading, and links to e-resources. A companion website includes PowerPoint slides for lecturers, links to useful resources, and lists of further reading.

About the Author:

Aida Y. Hass is an Associate Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Missouri State University.

Chris Moloney is the Criminal Justice Study Abroad Program Director and an Instructor of Criminal Justice at the American Center for Study Abroad at Sichuan University in Chengdu, China.

William J. Chambliss (1933-2014) was Professor of Sociology at George Washington University.

Review:

"With so many criminology texts to choose from, this book provides a unique perspective that emphasizes criminal law, critical thinking, and the relevance of theory for criminal justice policy and practice. Its integration of concrete legal vignettes and real life case studies provide provocative examples that will help students better understand how crime is socially constructed, and to see how crime and policy impact society, as well as their own lives."

Karen G. Weiss, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology and Sociology, West Virginia University

"Bringing together theories and typologies of offending with research and practical implications, Criminology: Connecting Research, Theory, and Practice illuminates for our students the "how" and "why" of crime and justice. Hass, Moloney, and Chambliss use lively case studies to engage readers with real-world illustrations of the criminal justice system and explanations for criminal behavior. Their "working in" feature allows students a rare glimpse into the daily activities of practitioners in the system and the "crime in global perspective" feature provides an important international context. With attention to emerging forms of offending, such as terrorism and cybercrime, as well as contemporary issues facing practitioners of courts, policing, and corrections, this is one of the most comprehensive texts in the field."

Jamie J. Fader, Assistant Professor, Department of Criminal Justice, Temple University

"Hass, Moloney and Chambliss's Criminology: Connecting Theory, Research and Practice connects theory, research and real-world application in a way that no other book does. It is written in a style that is perfect for undergraduates in criminology or criminal justice courses, or for any practitioners in criminal justice generally. This is a book most students would be wise to keep on their shelves long after graduation."

Todd M. Krohn, Program/Intern Coordinator, Department of Sociology, The University of Georgia

"In this new edition of Criminology: Connecting Theory, Research and Practice, Hass, Moloney and Chambliss once again offer a phenomenal instructional resource helping students to truly grasp criminology. Connecting theory to the importance of research and its practical implications illuminates the excitement of the field, making theory relevant to future practitioners and scholars. This is a must-have text for criminology courses."

Jennifer C. Gibbs, Assistant Professor, School of Public Affairs, Penn State Harrisburg
