November 1995



This reader includes the most up-to-date and engaging selections for a criminology course to be found under one cover, meeting an unfulfilled demand in the marketplace. All publication dates are between 1990 and 1996. Juvenile gangs, white-collar crime, sources of criminal behavior, violent crime, drugs, deterrence, treatment and punishment, and issues of class, gender and race represent topics covered. Selections are well-coordinated with material that appears in basic criminology textbooks, and professors using any one of these can consult a chart in the preface to see how to assign the selections. Carefully designed to supplement such texts, this reader can also be adopted as a basic reader supplemented by other monographs.
