Book Excerpt : Vold's Theoretical Criminology, first published in 1958, is a true classic in the field. It is almost universally known by scholars in the discipline; many used it during their own educations. The book takes a largely historical approach to the subject of criminological theory, presenting the theories in the rough order in which they gained prominence and providing some historical context. The book concludes with a chapter on evaluating and testing theories and their policy implications.The seventh edition will expand coverage of contemporary theories, including biosocial, cultural, and peacemaking criminology. The authors will also tie the theories more closely to policy and practice by including more real-life examples and discussions of policy implications throughout.
