Description

Product Description

Introduction to Criminology, Tenth Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to the study of criminology, focusing on the vital core areas of the field―theory, method, and criminal behavior. With more attention to crime typologies than most introductory texts, authors Frank E. Hagan and Leah Elizabeth Daigle investigate 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.

 

New to the Tenth Edition:

  • New "Applying Theory" scenarios are included with the theory chapters in Part II. These application exercises encourage critical thinking by asking you to use criminological theory to explain the criminal behavior of Aileen Wuornos. 
  • Updated "Crime and the Media" boxes highlight the effect that the media has on public perception of crime.  New topics include the #MeToo movement, media coverage of the opioid crisis, popular shows like Breaking Bad and The Wire, online dating fraud, and cyberbullying.
  • Over 170 new "Learning Check" questions and answers have been added throughout the book to help you review your understanding of key concepts and increase reading comprehension.
  • Examination of important new topics, like what works in criminology, the relationship between immigration and crime, the impact of neuroscience and genetic studies on criminology, recent shootings and terrorist attacks, and the continuing battle between over-criminalization and under-criminalization, deepens your  understanding of the field.
  • Updated figures, tables, and statistics throughout the book ensure that you have access to the most current information available.

Review

"This is one of the best texts I have seen in a while. It is comprehensive, somewhat conversational in its writing style, and provides a point of view that marries yesterday and today. It makes the world of criminology less daunting and more relevant."

-- Allyson S. Maida

"The textbook provides a comprehensive overview and discussion of the key components in criminology. The book is clearly written, covers major topics in the discipline, and is user friendly for students."

-- Jonathan Intravia, Ph.D

"Text is thorough, well-researched, attractively presented, appropriate for the selected audience, and accompanied by instructor and student resources to enhance the learning experience."

-- Thomas G. Ziesemer

Detailed, informative, driven by theory and examples." -- Dr. Amy Baumann Grau

"This is a wonderful introduction to criminology that is written in a student-friendly manner. The text and supplemental materials allow for a comprehensive overview of the field and will encourage students to begin to think about areas that they would like to pursue in greater detail in future courses. The book is priced much lower than the competition, yet offers similar or better quality."

-- Mark A. Winton

" I would describe this as a comprehensive introductory text to criminology. I would include that this text offers useful instructor resources and includes several resources throughout the text that help to enhance student understanding. " -- Racheal Pesta
