Overview

Written by internationally well-known and highly respected figures in the field, this leading text for the criminology course offered in departments of sociology and criminal justice, is known for its lucid style and particularly strong coverage of international and comparative crime.This text is available in two versions, one with, and the other without coverage of the criminal justice system. For schools that retain the traditional criminology course, which includes criminological coverage of criminal justice, Criminology, third edition, is the ideal text. For schools that have expanded their offerings by adding an introductory course in criminal justice, Criminology: The Shorter Version, 3/e, is probably more appropriate. The Shorter Version omits Part IV (A Criminological Approach to the Criminal Justice System).
