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 behaviour.
With more attention to crime typologies than most introductory texts, Hagan investigates all forms of criminal activity, such as:
The methods of operation, the effects on society and policy decisions, and the connection between theory and criminal behaviour 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.
