Theories of Crime: A Reader

Allyn & Bacon, 2002

Edited by: Claire M. Renzetti, Daniel J. Curran, and Patrick J. Carr

Theories of Crime

Designed as a stand-alone or for use with Curran & Renzetti's Theories of Crime, 2/e (Allyn & Bacon, © 2001), this reader contains excerpts from criminologists' writings on many of the most recent sociological, biological, and psychological theories of crime.

Editors Renzetti, Curran, and Carr have compiled one of the most thorough books on the market in terms of presenting diverse theoretical perspectives. They offer introductions to each theory, briefly outlining the theory's strengths and weaknesses, and provide a set of discussion questions at the end of each theory. Excerpted readings were chosen for their accessibility to all students.
