This text covers all major sociological theories of crime. The major points of each theory are summarized in a proposition format and the theories are placed in relation to time and history and their intellectual and social heritage. The book provides a bibliography of major works on each theory with a new research bibliography for each theory. This edition contains a new chapter on major new theoretical developments, including feminist perspectives, and a revised discussion on the direction of theory.

What the book is and who it is designed for
This book was originally designed as a handbook for students -- undergraduates taking a course in criminological theory and graduate students who are preparing for comprehensive exams. The chapters are purposefully written with as little critique as possible (we think the students and the instructors can provide that...). The theory bibliographies at the end of each chapter are designed especially for graduate students and are as comprehensive as we could make them. It makes the most sense to use this book with the actual works.
