Criminology in Canada highlights the dynamism and diversity in the field of Criminology, making the field come alive to students. The experienced author team of Larry J. Siegel and Chris McCormick have provided a fair and unbiased introduction to criminological theory and criminal justice policy, providing the facts and tools needed to think critically about key issues in criminology. The text addresses the question of why we behave the way we do. What causes one person to become violent, while another channels his or her energy into work, school, and family? Is behaviour a function of personal characteristics, or of upbringing and experiences? Is it influenced by culture or environment, or is it a combination? The text uses a typology-based approach to discuss these difficult questions. Carefully structured to cover relevant material in a comprehensive, balanced, and objective fashion, the text is a favourite among students and teachers alike. Readers will find their learning experience is enhanced by many engaging study aids and engaging cases. Criminology in Canada, 6th edition has been completely updated to reflect the most recent evolution of crime theory, and to illustrate the dynamic nature of criminology through the inclusion of major research studies, Supreme Court rulings, and governmental policy.
