“I think a text like this is long overdue. The inclusion of both material summarizing the theories and additional readings is important."— Shannon M. Barton, Indiana State University

The most accessible and comprehensive book for criminological theory courses available today, Criminological Theory: A Text/Reader, Second Edition, by Stephen G. Tibbetts and Craig Hemmens, provides the best of both worlds—substantial but brief authored sections on all of the major course topics, followed by carefully edited, policy-oriented, original research articles covering criminological theory from past to present and beyond. The Second Edition’s dozens of articles reflect both classic studies and state-of-the-art research. Designed throughout to enhance understanding, the book includes a helpful "How to Read a Research Article" before the first reading, as well as article introductions, photographs, and discussion questions that capture reader interest and help them develop their critical thinking skills. The new 2nd edition has added 8 new readings that are more recent and applicable to theoretical models in the text.

About the Author:

Stephen G. Tibbetts, currently a Professor at California State University, San Bernardino, has been pursuing an understanding of criminal offending for over the past two decades. He has attempted to discover the extent to which individuals’ inherent dispositions and attitudinal traits contribute to their offending decisions, especially in relation to other factors, such as demographic, developmental, and situational factors. Dr. Tibbetts’ research has included work on the differences between men and women in their decisions to commit deviant behavior, as well as their perceptions of risk and consequences of getting caught. His additional research interests include the effects of perinatal disorders as an influence in future criminality, the etiology of white-collar crime, and gang intervention.  Dr. Tibbetts has published nine books and more than 50 scholarly papers examining various issues in criminology. He received the 2011 Outstanding Professor Award at CSU, San Bernardino. He previously worked extensively as an Officer of the Court in providing recommendations for dispositions of numerous juvenile court cases from 1997 to 2008.
