Criminal acts are often the result of a number of influences. Socialization and processes based in the family influence behaviours, as do experiences at school, among peers, in the workplace, and in broader society. Media is a critical factor here too. All of these experiences and interactions with others have a "ripple effect": some are criminogenic, most are not. Moreover, the ripple effect suggests that whether we focus on the prevention, intervention, or suppression of crime, the approaches are intertwined.

A readable, attractive, and student-first text, Criminology, second Canadian edition is rich with pedagogical elements that promote and foster critical thinking. Building on the solid foundation of the first Canadian edition, this improved and updated edition features many new examples, a freshly written Epilogue, and even more Canadian content.
