An anthology of 24 essays on major developments in contemporary criminological theory

Divided into five sections, each with a contextualizing introduction by the volume editors, the collection covers in turn rational choice theories, including routine activities and situational crime prevention; biosocial and psychological theories, including criminal anthropology and arousal theory; sociological theories, including ecological and anomie theories; integrated theories; and conflict theories, including left realism, feminist criminology, and restorative justice. Taken together, these readings make a significant contribution to both the classical and contemporary debates about criminological theory.
