This unique text offers an interdisciplinary perspective on crime and criminality by integrating the latest theories, concepts, and research from sociology, psychology, and biology. Offering a more complete look at the world of criminology than any other existing text, authors Anthony Walsh and Lee Ellis first present criminological theory and concepts in their traditional form and then show how integrating theory and concepts from the more basic sciences can complement, expand, strengthen, and add coherence to them.

"I find that Walsh’s text is a great value for the price in that it encompasses a number of criminal justice topics, a strong theoretical discussion, and dedicates chapters to the integrated approach of criminology. [It also features] an interdisciplinary approach that integrates rather than separates the theories [and] a comprehensive student study site that challenges the student to move beyond the classroom and textbook." Author: Erin Conley-Monroe Published On: 2007-07-03
"I was impressed after reviewing the table of contents that Walsh included separate Chapters on Terrorism and Drugs . . . I felt that Walsh’s writing is very sophisticated and better organized with regards to Chapters than [the competition]. I really liked how the interdisciplinary approach is explained and the organization/choice of theories covered.... It addresses Criminology more at the interdisciplinary approach and explains why that is important.
I [also] find Sage’s [student study site at www.sagepub.com/criminologystudy] to be thorough and easy to navigate. Walsh is a much better value for the price." Author: Cathryn Lavery Published On: 2007-07-03
