The seventh edition of Criminological Theory: Context and Consequences builds on its prior success with updated coverage of criminological theory and a fresh look at policy implications. The new edition continues to offer a rich introduction to how scholars analyze crime in a clear, accessible text which moves readers beyond commonsense knowledge of crime to a deeper understanding of the importance of theory in shaping crime control policies.

This thoroughly revised edition covers traditional and contemporary theory within a larger sociological and historical context, and offers diverse coverage of major criminological theories includes perspectives ranging from biosocial theories to cultural criminology. The development of theories is covered within a broader sociological and historical context. The authors explore policy implications and applications. Chapter-opening photos of key theorists help motivate the discussions that follow, while a unique chapter on white collar crime is indicative of the comprehensive theory coverage offered in this book.
