"The sixth edition of Introduction to Criminology: Theories, Methods, and Criminal Behavior is an introduction to the study of criminology with a chapter devoted to the criminal justice system. This book concentrates on the vital core of criminological theory - theory, method, and criminal behavior - and avoids an overly legal or crime control orientation. The sixth edition investigates all major forms of criminal activity, including organized crime, white collar crime, political crime, and environmental crime."--BOOK JACKET.
