This book provides an opportunity to appreciate the various perspectives on crime and justice as they stand alone, and then to discover ways in which they can complement each other. This critique of disciplinary criminology brings biology, sociology, law, economics, feminism, the media, and ethnicity into a whole. With crime and social control out of control, this book provides a context in which to place all of the studies and research. Anyone interested in criminology - police officers, concerned citizens, politicians.

    Integrating Criminologies - The way to go.

    This particular textbook is essential to the student of any institution who is interested in criminology or in studying the causes of crime. Regardless of what you know, or think you know about that particular area of Criminal Justice, this text expands your mind and the limited scope of the various theories of crime. Instead of limiting your particular view of the causes of crime, this text will provide you an insight into the best of each of the various theories of crime, show you their limitations, and then show you how they can all be integrated into an interdisciplinary set of theories that will include a wide variety of disciplines of the community/society in an effort to determine the causes of crime, from media, through possible medical/psychological theories, and the various criminological theorists. As an Interdisciplinary Graduate Student in Criminal Justice, Sociology, and Psychology, this text was invaluable in my studies and in being able to tie these areas together in a lot easier manner than it would be otherwise.
