Criminology: The Core keeps students in the know of the most current research about the dynamic field of criminology while also teaching them the fundamental concepts they need to fully understand before they work in the field. It is concise and manageable for single-semester courses, offering real world examples that illustrate how criminology theories can be applied in real life cases. Author Larry Siegel also includes new references to make discussions timely and relevant. The book boasts extensive coverage, thanks to meticulous research and even includes controversial issues, encouraging critical thinking and opinion generation. Criminology: The Core (ISBN 9780495809838) also highlights the field's interdisciplinary nature. It tackles the basic principles of criminology, law, and crime, and discusses victimization. Crime theories are also covered, including trait, choice, social structure, and social process theories, in addition to developmental theories, and critical criminology. Crime typologies are also broken down, from violent crimes to enterprise, public order, property crimes, and various types of enterprise crimes (including cyber crime, white-collar crime, and organized crime). The final chapters of the book talk about the criminal justice system. Dr. Larry J. Siegel began his teaching career at the Northeastern University (Boston) way back 1971 where he taught juvenile justice, statistics, and research methods courses. He continued taking teaching positions at various universities around the country, and has done research and papers in the field of crime and justice. In addition to this book, he has authored other references on criminology, juvenile law and delinquency, and criminal procedure. This reference is the ideal companion for students who want to get better in their criminology courses, offering not only the basics but also excellent real world accounts that show how theoretical concepts and bases of criminology are applied. The book even features role-play sections entitled Thinking Like a Criminologist, and chapter checkpoints to monitor student progress.
