Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: “Succinct yet wide coverage. It is well-written and easily understandable. It covers a wide range of theories as well as the major sub-fields in criminology. It really is ‘the essentials.’"
Dr. Christian Bolden, Loyola University  

Criminology: The Essentials, Second Edition, by Anthony Walsh, covers the most up-to-date theories and research of the field in a concise, cost-effective format. Each chapter includes chapter-opening vignettes, photos, case studies, and tables and figures to engage reader interest. In the often-difficult theory chapters, summary tables that compare and contrast theories and Concluding Policy and Prevention sections promote a deep understanding of criminological concepts.
