Summary

This reader-friendly text presents a comprehensive and integrated approach to introductory criminology. Acclaimed authors and professors Pamela Schram and Steven G. Tibbetts skillfully connect criminological theories to real-life cases to help students better understand criminology fundamentals. They thoroughly introduce theoretical perspectives that explain criminal behavior and are most respected by modern criminologists, while illustrating the theories with real-life examples such as street violence and property crimes. This text also includes many contemporary topics that are not well represented in competing texts, such as cybercrime, hate crimes, white-collar crime, homeland security, and identity theft.

KEY FEATURES

SAGE original video is included, featuring candid interviews with a former offender as well as author-led discussions on learning tips and ''weird crimes''. These unique videos connect criminological theories to real-life stories that students will remember. Chapter-opening vignettes present real-life cases that tie directly to the concepts learned in the chapter. These cases are revisited throughout the chapter as students learn additional theories and concepts. Why They Do It: High Profile Cases give students an opportunity to critically analyze some of the most high profile cases they hear about in the news. The text incorporates a world view in criminology by presenting, in each chapter transnational comparisons regarding crime rates and the way other countries deal with crime. An entire chapter is devoted to Feminist criminological theories, a subject not given adequate attention in most competing textbooks. Applying Theory to Crime boxes help students integrate the concepts they learn to real-life street crimes and scenarios. Chapter-opening Learning Objectives help prepare students to focus on concepts they will learn throughout the chapter.
