This book clearly depicts criminological concepts and is great for an intro to criminology. In addition, all of the information stated within the text is referenced at the end of each chapter so that skeptics and grad students can dig further to validate claims. Very easy read and the book is obviously written with the reader in mind and thus paints a broader picture of the relevant topics so that the reader can more easily follow the outline of each chapter. Highly recommended!
