Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0132357712, Paperback)
This fully updated book reflects the most recent changes that have taken place within the study of criminal and deviant behavior. Now with a greater slant on crime, it presents timely discussions on theory, research and policy, and rounds out coverage with illuminating historical and comparative research examples. Organizes chapters theoretically and provides a multiview perspective for a sound, balanced treatment, with a solid integration of theory, research, and social policy throughout. Emphasizes 'crime' as a specific form of deviance, and now uses actual research examples vs. an encyclopedic review of research to add dimension and reinforce understanding. Extensively revises discussions on theory, research and policy to incorporate the most current information available. Visually supports material with diagrams, boxed research illustrations, tables, graphs, and maps. For professors of sociology and criminal justice.
