A variety of useful revisions as well as additions have been made to this most recent edition including the most current coverage of crime-related topics, brand new 'Professor Speaks' excerpts and interactive links to contemporary articles. An additional resource of this book is that of the MyCrimeKit activities and exercises that challenge students to examine how security and freedom intertwine in the modern times of increasing globalism.
