Designed for introductory undergraduate courses in two- and four-year programs, Introduction to Criminology, 7th Edition is a streamlined, focused introduction to the study of criminology with more attention to crime typologies than other texts, plus Crime Files boxes that offer real-world, well-known examples of the crime types discussed. Written by an active researcher, this student-praised text covers the basic criminological theories, including expanded material on psychosocial and biosocial theories, and a new chapter on computer crime. The full-color design and a new just-in-time learning enhancement—margin notes that link students to online learning materials at appropriate points in the chapters—bring the text to life for students visually and virtually.
