I found this book to be logical and straightforward with very little jargon. It makes a very useful basis for further study. It is by far the easiest criminological text book to read.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good product with all the relevant information required for my degree. However, there are two pages missing from the beginning of the book which is a bit unhelpful as i only have half a contents page.

The book started to become unbinded writhin the first day, which when paying so much money, I would've thought the book would be in one piece.

social context 25 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The previous reviewer missed the point. Criminological theory should be studied with an appreciation of the social context (i.e., history) in which the theories were developed and extended.

Criminological Theory 1 April 2013
By ramyrain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A required course that I am glad to take. This text is advanced and I recommend taking lower level sociology courses in criminology before attempting to read this text. Some of the theories will be familiar, but this text takes them and breaks them down even further. Good buy, and great book!

great book 29 Sep 2012
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The best book I have ever read about criminology. The reading is a bit hard, but criminology is not a simple subject. It is complex with a huge variety of theories, and there is no, YES or NO answer. I kept my book after class, and I will never sell it.
