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.
