Description

Powerfully illustrated, compelling content.

 

Criminology is a user friendly criminology text that teaches students about the exciting field of criminology using the learning skills they already possess. In recognition of the visual orientation of today's learners, we sought to achieve a comprehensive integration of graphic art with the concepts and ideas of criminology. Consequently, Criminology is intensely visual. Its layout and design invite readers to explore its pages, which powerfully illustrate the critical concepts that are central to the field of criminology today. Our intent is to visually attract readers to the subject matter of criminology, making for ease of learning.
