The updated edition builds on the authors' acclaimed theory of the "Crime Prism". In this newly revised text, Lanier and Henry build upon their critical review of criminology, expanding their coverage of the multifaceted "Crime Prism," white-collar and corporate, new developments in biocriminology, cognitive theory, feminist criminology, and postmodernism. Importantly, they re-frame crime and its control in the context of global interconnectedness, expanded Internet communication and international terrorism since 9/11, and ask: what kind of criminology is needed for the 21st Century? The addition of illustrative comparative real-world examples and vital updates reflecting the latest studies and theoretical developments make this text a necessity for both undergraduate and graduate courses in criminology.
