Theories of Crime
This book surveys the major theoretical perspectives in criminology, including biological/physiological theories, psychological/psychiatric theories, and sociological theories of crime. Each chapter provides a balanced overview, examining each theory in the context of empirical research that tests it. New chapters have been added, focusing on areas such as feminist theories of crime, the routine activities theory, control balance theory, and a chapter focusing on providing greater coverage of conflict radical theories, including left realism, peacemaking criminology, and postmodern criminology. For anyone involved in criminology studies.
