Taking a concise, critical approach, the fifth edition of Crime in Canadian Context: Debates and Controversies draws on up-to-date statistics and research, controversial issues, and contemporary examples to provide a detailed introduction to crime in Canada. Theoretically comprehensive, this new edition outlines both sociological and non-sociological theories of crime and examines how crime is defined, measured, reported, and controlled in Canada. As a readable, single-authored text, Crime in Canadian Context covers compelling topics - such as hate crimes, police misconduct, violence against women and Indigenous peoples, overrepresentation in the criminal justice system, gangs, corporate crime, and harm reduction initiatives - with a consistent, clear voice. Critical thinking questions at the end of each chapter reinforce key concepts, while coverage of current debates and controversies encourage students to consider real-world issues and participate in well-informed discussions.
Praised for being a well-researched and accessible guide, Crime in Canadian Context offers a balanced overview of the essential concepts and skills required to excel in the study of crime.
