Written by active researcher and bestselling author, Frank E. Hagan, Introduction to Criminology, Ninth Edition is a comprehensive introduction to the study of criminology,  focusing on the vital core of criminological theory― theory, method, and criminal behavior. With more attention to crime typologies than most introductory texts, Hagan investigates all forms of criminal activity, such as organized crime, white collar crime, political crime, and environmental crime. The methods of operation, the effects on society and policy decisions, and the connection between theory and criminal behavior are all explained in a clear, accessible manner. All statistics, tables, and figures have been updated, as have the photographs, supplements, and audio and video packages in the new edition to make the material most relevant for your course.

Review:

"It has a lot of really great features that make it worth adopting."

Author: Patricia L. Donze, J.D. Ph.D.

"I am already utilizing this text in my sections of JUS 200 Criminology.  Most of my chapter responses above indicate strengths of this particular text compared to those from the previous text used.  Not only does Hagan’s text provide a strong foundation for students new to criminology, it also serves as a useful resource, with supporting citations, for those who choose to keep the book for future reference.  I have been very pleased with the text as well as the instructor resources provided by SAGE.  I do not imagine that I will change texts in the foreseeable future."

Author: Dr. Tamara J. Lynn

"[Strengths include] the use of pictures, charts, graphs, tables, and "Crime Files".  Not only do these resources provide valuable information, they help break-up the pages giving the reader the appearance that they are not reading a boring old textbook"

Author: Robert Roth

"The book is a well-written and accessible to undergraduates. The book reflects important and noteworthy changes that are occurring in the field of criminology and it has great supplemental resources..."

Author: Arina Gertseva

"I like the book a lot..."

Author: David R. Montague, Ph.D.

"Comprehensive...easily accessible"

Author: Anita Kalunta-Crumpton

"It is comprehensive and well-organized... the Crime File features add much to the material"

Author: Terri L. Earnest

"[Strengths include the] writing style, general content and layout, and online supplemental materials for both students and instructors"

Author: Todd M. Krohn

"Frequent references to actual, current cases/examples"

Author: Erica Ross

"Since we already use this text book, I would very likely recommend to committees working on the course that we continue to use the book.  It is working and I don’t believe in fixing something that is not broken if we continue to have some input into making regular improvements and updates."

Author: Dorothy A. Sliben
