Criminological Theories Summary

Criminological Theories: Traditional and Non-Traditional Voices and Themes by Imogene L Moyer

This comprehensive textbook not only offers a detailed presentation of theoretical perspectives and theorists, but also includes a history of the social environment for each theoretical perspective and biographies of the various theorists. Unlike other comparable criminology texts, Imogene L. Moyer includes discussions of the levels of analysis and the assumptions of the theorists regarding society and people. In addition to covering the traditional theories, the book features currently developing feminist and peacemaking theories, as well as theories from people of color. Exerts from the original sources are frequently incorporated into the chapters.

The text features flow charts, photographs, inset biographical sketches, and discussion questions at the end of chapters. Both author and subject indices are included. The book is directed to upper division undergraduate and graduate students in criminology and sociology courses on criminological theories of deviance.
