Abstract:

This book is intended as an analytical overview of criminological theory. It is designed to give upper-level students a clear understanding of the underlying assumptions of criminological thought by examining the ideas of its various theories on human nature, societal structure, criminal law, criminal behavior, crime causation, and criminal justice policy. It shows how criminological theories are constituted and how particular theorists' ideas contribute to an overall theoretical framework.-Pref.
