Concise, current, and affordable, CRIMINOLOGY: THE CORE, Sixth Edition, delivers cutting-edge coverage in a succinct, easy-reading paperback. Author Larry Siegel guides you through the fast-paced field of criminology, its most current research, and fascinating examples that help you truly understand criminological theory. The text details the crimes of real-life people to illustrate specific criminology theories. Highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of the field, it also offers unbiased coverage of even the most controversial issues -- enabling you to form your own opinions. This edition includes the latest insights into political crime; terrorism (e.g. ISIS, lone wolves); white-collar, blue-collar, and green-collar crime; cyber crime; transnational crime (e.g. sex trafficking); and many other topics. In addition, the text is packed with resources like "Thinking Like a Criminologist" role-plays and "Connections" to the big picture to help you maximize your course success.
  • New case vignettes illuminate concepts and theories throughout the text. Siegel selects contemporary examples based on relevance, notoriety, and the way in which they raise important legal or procedural issues. Topics include the Ferguson shooting; the Charleston Church massacre; a cancer doctor who made millions of dollars giving people a false diagnosis (illustrating "rational choice" in Ch. 4); and Newtown shooter Adam Lanza (Ch. 5) as well as other high profile cases to suggest that crime is not always just a matter of rational choice, but rather the product of a "twisted mind."
