Theoretical criminology by George B Vold ( Book )
62 editions published between 1958 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 2,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The standard text and reference in its field has been extensively revised and completely updated. New sections include materials on neurotransmitters, environmentally induced biological components of behavior, impulsiveness and crime, neighbourhoods as causes of crime, situational contexts of crime, the decline and resurgence of strain theories, and control-ology. The test also examines Gottfredson and Hirsch's General Theory Crime, Katz's Seductions of Crime, Hagan's Structural Criminology, Black's Behavior of Law, as well as postmodern criminology and feminist criminology. A new chapter on developmental criminology discusses criminal careers, longitudinal research, the relationship between age and crime, Thornberry's interactional theory, and Sampson and Laub's age-graded theory of informational social control. A second chapter on integrated theories discusses recent efforts by Elliott et al., Braithwaite, Tittle, Vila, and Bernard and Snipes."

Vold's Theoretical Criminology, Sixth Edition, presents the most precise, up-to-date, and comprehensive overview of criminological theory available, building on the foundation of George B. Vold's Theoretical Criminology, which paved the way for a generation of criminological theorists. Coupled with new, student-friendly features, the sixth edition features expanded discussions of: empirical research within specific theories; the "biosocial" approach; theoretical explanations for gendered differences in crime; low self-control and the general theory of crime; Control Balance Theory; and General Strain Theory. In addition, the text covers such new topical areas as Lonnie Athens's Theory of "Violentization;" Agnew's General Theory; Zimbardo's "Lucifer Effect;" the Cambridge Youth Violence Study; and Coercion and Social Support. Offering improved pedagogy --including new Key Terms lists and end-of-chapter Discussion Questions--this new edition also presents additional material on policy implications
