This leading text for courses in Criminology is known for its lucid style, student-oriented approach, and its interdisciplinary global perspective. 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 and the Criminal Justice System, Fourth Edition, is the ideal text. For schools that offer a separate introductory course in criminal justice, Criminology, Fourth Edition is the appropriate text.
