Introduction to Criminology (10th ed.)

Theories, Methods, and Criminal Behavior

Frank E. Hagan,

Introduction to Criminology: Theories, Methods, and Criminal Behavior
 
 

Introduction to Criminology, Tenth Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to the study of criminology, focusing on the vital core areas of the field—theory, method, and criminal behavior. With more attention to crime typologies than most introductory texts, authors Frank E. Hagan and Leah Elizabeth Daigle investigate all forms of criminal activity, such as organized crime, white collar crime, political crime, and environmental crime. The methods of operation, the effects on society and policy decisions, and the connection between theory and criminal behavior are all explained in a clear, accessible manner.

 

New to the Tenth Edition:

  • New “Applying Theory” scenarios are included with the theory chapters in Part II. These application exercises encourage critical thinking by asking you to use criminological theory to explain the criminal behavior of Aileen Wuornos. 
  • Updated “Crime and the Media” boxes highlight the effect that the media has on public perception of crime.  New topics include the #MeToo movement, media coverage of the opioid crisis, popular shows like Breaking Bad and The Wire, online dating fraud, and cyberbullying.
  • Over 170 new “Learning Check” questions and answers have been added throughout the book to help you review your understanding of key concepts and increase reading comprehension.
  • Examination of important new topics, like what works in criminology, the relationship between immigration and crime, the impact of neuroscience and genetic studies on criminology, recent shootings and terrorist attacks, and the continuing battle between over-criminalization and under-criminalization, deepens your  understanding of the field.
  • Updated figures, tables, and statistics throughout the book ensure that you have access to the most current information available.
