MEDIA REVIEWS
"I find that Walsh's text is a great value for the price in that it encompasses a number of criminal justice topics, a strong theoretical discussion, and dedicates chapters to the integrated approach of criminology. [It also features] an interdisciplinary approach that integrates rather than separates the theories [and] a comprehensive student study site that challenges the student to move beyond the classroom and textbook." -- Erin Conley-Monroe
"I was impressed after reviewing the table of contents that Walsh included separate Chapters on Terrorism and Drugs . . . I felt that Walsh's writing is very sophisticated and better organized with regards to Chapters than [the competition]. I really liked how the interdisciplinary approach is explained and the organization/choice of theories covered.... It addresses Criminology more at the interdisciplinary approach and explains why that is important.
I [also] find Sage's [student study site at www.sagepub.com/criminologystudy] to be thorough and easy to navigate. Walsh is a much better value for the price." -- Cathryn Lavery
