Explaining Crime, Fourth Edition, retains the exceptional organization and content of the original editions, with completely updated statistics and references. It is ideally suited for a one semester course that serves as an introduction to criminology by dealing with three issues: definition of crime, measurement of crime, and theories of crime. Throughout the text, the attitude is critical. Criticism rests on three standards: clarity of concepts, quality of evidence, and utility of theory for public policy.
Thoroughly revised version of a classic textbook
Introductory text dealing with definition, measurement, and explanations of crime
