Because of recent changes in communication, transportation, and commerce, crime has become a global phenomenon. Criminology: A Global Perspective was developed to address this new reality and broadens the discussion of crime and social control to the global arena. Relying on data extracted from both national and international sources, the book offers a comparative criminology website that compiles information on each country, its history, its crime statistics and more! The innovation continues with a manageable approach to theories—first covering general theories and then introducing new theories within the context of specific crimes. Realizing that crime is no longer contained by geographic boundaries, the book analyzes where crime is occurring and which theories are true universally, not just in the United States. True global perspectivenot found in competing books. Comparative Criminology Websiteoffers a virtual tour of crime throughout the world. Manageable approach to theoryincludes three introductory chapters (ch. 3-5), followed by other theories presented within the context of crimes (ch. 6-15). An excellent book for those new to Criminology who are looking for criminal justice information about all of the countries of the world.
