Understanding Crime in Canada: An Introduction to Criminology

Edited by Neil Boyd

Understanding Crime in Canada: An Introduction to Criminology provides an overview of the foundations of criminology, and is intended for an introductory-level university and college audience. In addition to surveying the key theoretical approaches, it also examines important aspects in the study of criminology, including the role of the media; key points of criminal law; ways of measuring crime; and a thorough survey of the various types of crime. Case studies and boxes are used throughout to illustrate the theoretical aspects of the text in a real-world context. The concise chapters, accessible presentation, and Canadian content make it an ideal introduction to the field for the first-time student of criminology.
