9780195370904: Crime and Criminals: Contemporary and Classic Readings in Criminology
Review:

A vibrant collection of readings designed to provide a comprehensive—and accessible—introduction to criminology, Crime and Criminals: Contemporary and Classic Readings, Second Edition, brings together selections from diverse and dynamic sources, including sociologists, criminologists, and scholars from other related disciplines. Featuring twenty-four new readings, this incisive text addresses the broad range of subjects typically covered in a criminology course, including society's attempts to control crime and criminal behavior.

To help students understand the relevance and real-world applications of criminology, new coeditor J. Mitchell Miller has shaped this edition with new selections that address how criminological research directly influences practical responses to crime. Building on the work of coeditors Frank R. Scarpitti and Amie L. Nielsen, these cutting-edge readings reflect exciting developments in contemporary criminology while also preserving the text's original purpose: to compile a set of readings that represent both the breadth and variety of research on the causes of crime, its control, and related social policy issues.

In addition, this engaging text integrates many helpful pedagogical resources, which draw students into the core concepts and fundamental theories of the field:

* An introductory chapter begins each section, providing a survey of the major issues in each area and a helpful context for the readings that follow
* An introduction precedes each selection, offering an overview of the article and a discussion of its relevance to students
* Lively discussion questions follow each reading

An essential resource for criminology courses, the new edition Crime and Criminals explores the dynamic, challenging, and ever-changing realities of crime.

The ambitious breadth of the editors' goals represents the anthology's strength. However, simply noting that the readings are comprehensive and logical does an injustice to the editors' accomplishment. This anthology represents an intellectual coup . . . a virtual celebration of and tribute to some of the real giants of criminology. ( William A. Reese, Augusta State University)

Review:

The ambitious breadth of the editors' goals represents the anthology's strength. However, simply noting that the readings are comprehensive and logical does an injustice to the editors' accomplishment. This anthology represents an intellectual coup . . . a virtual celebration of and tribute to some of the real giants of criminology. ( William A. Reese, Augusta State University)

Many criminology texts seem to mimic an almost tabloid-type sensationalism. By contrast, the introductions and the articles selected in this book reflect solid, well-researched, and carefully reasoned approaches to the study of crime. ( Joan Olson, University of Mary Washington)
