The ninth edition of Barlow and Kauzlarich continues the tradition of presenting the field of criminology to students with a combination of intellectual excitement and contemporary flair. This is an outstanding textbook! -- Ronald C. Kramer, professor of sociology and director of the criminal justice program at Western Michigan University In the latest edition of Kauzlarich and Barlow's Introduction to Criminology, we are treated to one of the richest sources of information and scholarly reflections about the nature, meaning, scope, and causes of crime and criminal behavior available. The text is ripe with contemporary empirical research characterizing various forms of street crime, white collar crime, crime by the government, public order crime, and crimes by juveniles, females, and adults in general. In sum, I strongly recommend this book for use in classrooms. -- Gary Feinberg, chair, The Department of Social Sciences and Counseling, St. Thomas University This superb text offers students an engaging and richly informative survey of criminology. Its special strengths include a coherent, well-organized typological approach to crime, systematic exposure of commonplace myths about criminals and criminal justice, and an in-depth, critical examination of the whole range of criminological theories. Kauzlarich and Barlow have made significant, independent contributions to criminological knowledge. -- David O. Friedrichs, professor of sociology and criminal justice & Distinguished University Fellow at the University of Scranton, and author of T
