About the Book

This concise, accessible introduction to criminology explores how crime is defined, measured, and controlled within a Canadian context. In-depth and well-balanced, the text covers the fundamentals of the discipline before exploring non-sociological explanations of crime, criminological theory, social inequality and crime, organizational crime, and intersections between the law and the criminal justice system. Drawing on the latest Canadian statistics and research, the text examines a range of contemporary topics from hate crime to homeless youth in an engaging and succinct style. Thoroughly updated with expanded discussions on policy, youth justice, and criminal law, along with boxed coverage of global and media issues, this second edition is essential reading for students studying criminology in Canada.
