Criminological Theory: A Text/Reader, Third Edition, by Stephen G. Tibbetts and Craig T. Hemmens helps you understand criminological theory, with each authored section of the text enhanced by empirical research articles that put theory into context. Key criminological theories are introduced and followed by articles that show how criminological theory can be applied to current policies, challenges, and issues, making it easier for you to connect theory and application.

New to the Third Edition:

Updated journal articles introduce you to important topics, such as media consumption and support for capital punishment, gender differences in delinquency, bias and police stops, and the effectiveness of reintegrative shaming and restorative justice.
A new section dedicated entirely to feminist perspectives introduces you to feminist models of crime and underscores the importance of examining research related to female offending.
A stronger global view integrated throughout the book increases your exposure to criminological research and theory across nations and continents. Several of the new readings are written by authors or use samples from outside the United States, including South Africa, Brazil, Canada, Korea, and more.
New case studies examine offender motives to help you apply the theories discussed to interesting and memorable examples.
Policy is now integrated into each section, allowing you to see the practical policy implications of each theory.
Coverage of critical topics has been expanded throughout to introduce you to important issues, such as the influence of employment on criminal behavior, the success of school programs in reducing delinquent behavior, and federal sentencing guidelines in regard to crack versus powder cocaine.
Statistics, graphs, and tables have all been updated to demonstrate the most recent trends in criminology.
