Criminology focuses on a number of topics that are related to the study of crime. The chapters of this e-book and videos within it explore the following topics: (1) the definition of crime from various perspectives (e.g., normative, legal, labeling definitions of crime), (2) sources of crime statistics (e.g., FBI data, self-report studies, and victimization surveys), (3) criminological theories (e.g., biological, psychological and sociological explanations for criminality and the nature of crime distribution), (4) the characteristics of particular types of crimes (e.g., homicide, rape, robbery, burglary, motor vehicle theft, white-collar crimes, and organized criminal activity), and (5) crime control policies and practices (e.g., criminal sanctions and the death penalty). Each of the chapters provides a discussion of current thinking on the nature of crime, its causes, and possible solutions to this problem in advanced societies.
