9780415370684: Theories of Crime

Presenting a clear, comprehensive review of theoretical thinking on crime, this book encourages students to develop a deeper understanding of classic and contemporary theories and provides an interdisciplinary approach to criminology through the contributions of sociology, psychology and biology. A key text for any undergraduate student following programmes in criminology and criminal justice, Theories of Crime covers topics such as:

  • the historical context of crime 
  • biological explanations for criminal behaviour
  • psychological explanations for criminal behaviour
  • sociological explanations for the criminal behaviour
  • the criminal behaviour of women
  • the criminal behaviour of ethnic minorities.

By adopting an interactive approach to encourage students to react to the text and think for themselves, this book distinguishes itself from others in the field and ensures its place as a valuable teaching resource. The student-centred nature of the book is further enhanced by reflective question breaks throughout the text, chapter summaries, suggested further reading and web sites.
