A unique sociological introduction to the field of criminology with award-winning coverage that highlights issues of ethnicity, gender, race, and social class

Steven Barkan’s Criminology: A Sociological Understanding, 7th Edition, (PDF) provides a sociological perspective on criminal justice and crime by treating social inequality and social structure as central themes in the study of crime—and major factors in society’s treatment of criminals. It pays explicit attention to key sociological concepts such as gender, poverty, race, and ethnicity, and demonstrates their influence on crime. Moving beyond simple “get tough” approaches, the ebook emphasizes the need to understand the social causes of criminal behavior in order to significantly reduce it. The 7th Edition continues to include chapters that remain uncommon in other criminology textbooks, and addresses 2 central themes in the sociological understanding of criminal justice and crime: (I) the degree to which race, gender, ethnicity, and social class affect the operation of the criminal justice system; and (II) the extent to which reliance on the criminal justice system can reduce the amount of crime. Throughout the textbook, pedagogical features give criminology students the tools to master key concepts faster and more effectively while making class preparation quick and very easy for instructors.
