Criminology Today: An Integrative Introduction presents a clear, contemporary introduction to criminology. The text prompts you to think critically about the causes of crime and the link between crime theories and policies. Throughout the text, the authors frame content through the hallmark theme of social problems versus individual responsibility. Real-life stories and up-to-date examples bring to life both historical and modern criminological approaches.
The 10th Edition addresses the poignant question of how security and freedom interface in an age of increasing globalism. It also offers substantially expanded coverage of terrorism and cyberterrorism. Additional fresh content reflects contemporary issues such as federal immigration policy, marijuana laws and the opioid crisis.
