Criminology free pdf This unique text offers an interdisciplinary perspective on crime and criminality by integrating the latest theories, concepts, and research from sociology, psychology, and biology. Offering a more complete look at the world of criminology than any other existing text, authors Anthony Walsh and Lee Ellis first present criminological theory and concepts in their traditional form and then show how integrating theory and concepts from the more basic sciences can complement, expand, strengthen, and add coherence to them. Key Features: * Offers students the opportunity to learn from the "cutting edges" of criminology: This innovative, interdisciplinary approach introduces students to the "future" of criminology by offering new and exciting insights. The book also includes strong sections on crime policy and prevention that illustrate the practical benefits of understanding theory and how theories guide policy-makers seeking to prevent and control crime. * Focuses on topics fascinating to students: Chapters on typologies such as violent crime, serial killers, terrorism, drug and alcohol addiction, psychopaths, organized crime, and white collar crime engage students while showing how the theories presented earlier can be applied. * Presents material in a student-friendly style: Written in an accessible format, the book features many pedagogical tools such as chapter opening vignettes, "Focus On" boxes, summary tables of all theories, a unique photo program, discussion questions, Web-driven exercises, and key terms. The book is accompanied by an Instructor's Resource CD, and a Student Study Site includes interactive quizzes, journal articles, and much more! This core textbook is designed for undergraduate students studying introductory criminology in the departments of Sociology and Criminal Justice.
