Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "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.
