9781414000336: Criminological Theories and Theorists: An American Social Perspective on Crime

Criminological Theories and Theorists focuses on many of the traditional hypotheses about the causes of crime, the possibility of crime prevention, and the significant historical figures associated with crime theory- all from an American sociological perspective. In Part One, Professor Botta discusses The Foundations of Early Criminological Thought, chronologically guiding his readers from the dawn of the theoretical roots of societal crime mythology to the doorstep of the science of criminology in America in the modern age. In Part Two, Professor Botta introduces his readers to The Foundations of Modern Criminological Thought, covering contemporary criminological theories and their sociological impact on the science of criminology in twenty-first century America. In addition to the substantive material in this intriguing contribution to the classroom and scholarship, a series of essays on contemporary topics and influential philosophical leaders is presented to readers as a pragmatic example of the relationship among several academic disciplines and the science of criminology. This approach demonstrates how philosophical ideas generate sociological policies that help create criminological theory. This extraordinary presentation represents a concise treatment of the multi disciplinary approaches to criminology practiced in the United States today through a melding of philosophical, interdisciplinaryexaminations of real-life sociological problems.
