With a focus on empirical evaluation and practical application, Criminological Theories: Introduction, Evaluation, and Application, Sixth Edition, helps students draw connections between criminological theory and practical applications.

In clear, engaging language, authors Ronald L. Akers and Christine S. Sellers explore each principal criminological theory using a three-part analysis:

* An Introduction presents a succinct exposition of the theory's central concepts, assertions, and hypotheses.
* Next, an Evaluation provides a detailed critique of the theory, with an emphasis on empirical validity.
* Finally, an Application extends the evaluation to determine each theory's relevance, as well as its potential for controlling and preventing crime and delinquency.
