This anthology is a superb collection of 36 articles covering the major theories, past and present, that inform criminology today. What truly sets this volume apart is the inclusion of many articles discussing novel and often overlooked perspectives in criminological theory. In fact, many of these articles have never before been included in a reader. Such articles include an examination of topics such as white-collar crime and developmental criminology, as well as discussions of integrated theories that consider genetics, psychology, and environmental approaches. As most journal articles are typically written for a professional audience, the original articles have been substantially edited and abridged to make them more accessible to students. Each article is framed by an introductory overview (discussing the article's importance and the context for its development) and concludes with discussion questions. The resulting reader will prove to be an invaluable resource for any undergraduate or graduate course where criminological theory plays a central role.
