Crime and Criminality : Social, Psychological, and Neurobiological Explanations, Paperback / softback Book

Crime and Criminality : Social, Psychological, and Neurobiological Explanations Paperback / softback


This informative and entertaining book, peppered with personal anecdotes and rich in case studies, adopts a unique approach to studying the causes of crime.

Rather than relying on one theoretical position, Boyanowsky borrows from a range of theories to explain criminal behavior and answer questions central to the field of criminology. Crime and Criminality employs case studies, both notorious and lesser known, to bring theories to life and offer insight into vital contemporary issues, such as domestic violence, child pornography, genocide, the effect of climate change on crime, and the evolution of cybercrime.

Engaging, accessible, and comparative in scope, this book is ideal for students and general readers interested in understanding the varied causes of crime.

Introductions and summaries in each chapter make this an ideal text for criminology courses.
