Criminological Theories is a solid text that covers a wide range of criminological theories, from early ideas about deviant behavior to current policy-relevant theories. It also emphasizes the evaluation of competing theories, which is beneficial for all students of criminology.
David Mackey, Plymouth State University Criminological Theories provides an overview of the central tenets and history of major criminological theories and details the contemporary state of theory testing. It is an excellent, sophisticated resource.
