"The Essentials of Criminology: A Student-Oriented Approach to Teaching Crime Theory" is a readable, relevant overview of criminological theories and their use in understanding, explaining, and responding to crime. It provides foundational knowledge and engages students through real-life examples and scenarios. In contrast to many standard textbooks which tend to overwhelm both instructors and students with dozens of theories, The Essentials of Criminology focuses on select theories, exploring them in depth. Principal categories of theory covered in the text include: Neo-Classical Theories (Crime as a Choice)Structure Theories (Crime as a result of Societal Environment, Values, Stressors, and Subculture) Process Theories (Crime as a result of Individual Learning, Associations, and Social/Self Control) Conflict Theories (Crime as a result of the Unequal Distribution of Power) Developmental Theories (Crime as a Career) The book also examines how drug use, abuse, and addiction are entwined in criminal behavior. Summaries throughout the text provide quick reference and aid retention. Recommended assignments give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned through independent academic research, critiques, and projects and presentations. "The Essentials of Criminology" is written for one-semester courses in criminology, criminal justice, and applied crime theory, and designed so that all the material in the text can be adequately and thoughtfully covered. Lisa C. Coole earned her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology at Bridgewater State College and her Master's Degree in Criminal Justice at Northeastern University. She is currently an Associate Professor and the Department Chair of the Social Science Department at Massasoit Community College in Brockton and Canton, Massachusetts, where she teaches courses in sociology, criminology, and the sociology of deviance. She is also a Visiting Associate Professor at Bridgewater State University, teaching in both the Sociology and Criminal Justice departments.
