Summary From the Publisher: Crime and Criminals is an essentials introduction to the study of criminology, focusing on crime types in particular. The book aims to provide broader coverage of all major crime types, as well as brief coverage of research methods and theory. The book can be used as both a stand alone and supplementary text in courses such as introduction to criminology, crime and society, deviant behavior, crime profiling, and many other seminars within the criminology and criminal justice discipline. Unlike many of the current criminology books on the market, this is a brief book that really talks about all kinds of crime and criminals in detail in a way to capture and retain student interest
