Description
Summary:"This informative and entertaining book, peppered with personal anecdotes, and rich in case studies, adopts an eclectic approach to studying the causes of crime. Rather than rely on one theoretical position, Boyanowsky opts to borrow from a variety of theories to arrive at the most effective answer. As a result, even seasoned veterans will learn from this book. Crime and Criminality employs case studies, both notorious and lesser known, to bring theories to life, and to offer insight into vital contemporary topics like domestic violence, child pornography, genocide, the effect of climate change on crime, and the evolution of cybercrime. Entertaining, and accessible, and comparative in scope, this text is ideal for students and general readers interested in understanding the varied causes of crime. Instructor supports in the form of PowerPoint slides as well as introductions, and summaries for each chapter make this an ideal text for criminology courses. "--
