Description - Theories of Crime by Claire M. Renzetti

* Chapter 7 is brand new and focuses on feminist theories of crime. * Chapter 4 has been expanded to include the routine activities theory. * Chapter 5 has been expanded to include control balance theory. * Chapter 6 has been expanded to provide greater coverage of conflict radical theories, including left realism, peacemaking criminology, and postmodern criminology. * New "How the World Sees It" boxes include discussions of violence against women as a human rights issue, and sex tourism. * New "Controversy and Debate" boxes include discussions of three strikes legislation and prosecution of pregnant drug addicts. * The excerpted readings have been deleted from this edition. * A boxed feature called "How the World Sees It" appears in each chapter, examining ways that an issue raised by a theory is addressed in other countries. * A second boxed feature called "Controversy and Debate" can also be found in each chapter. This material helps students understand some of the practice and policy implications of specific theories, thereby making theory more accessible and concrete. * Each chapter contains a list of key terms and their definitions, along with an annotated list of suggested readings. * A brief methodological appendix appears at the end of the book.
