Criminology – Paperback – Piers Beirne; James W. Messerschmidt – Oxford University Press

Please try again later. Basically Humboldt State University’s whole Crim program in one book. Note, if you are there, you are taking sociology under a different brand, and are about to get flooded with social justice nonsense for the remainder of your classes. However, the content of this book is worth reading through regardless!

Good information for the class I needed it for. Arrived in time, was used for my class like 2 or 3 times, and never used again! Despite it being used, the book was well kept, no stains on the pages, and was usable.

criminolgoy First of all it beorne water damaged and the back it has a small slash that someone cut into it. I bought this book for a criminal justice course I was taking. It’s definetly full of facts and figures, but the authors fail to bring in their interpretation of the information, nor do they really apply theories to present day problems.

Also, it lacks any sort of transition between topics- you move from one topic to the next, with little connection as the book progresses through the cruminology. However, there is a ton of data for a relatively small book.


If you’re looking for a book that is educational and entertaining, this probably isn’t right for you. If your looking for a text that’s full of statistics and historical facts, it’ll be a good match.

One person found this helpful. Will probably be one of my favorite books to read and to have. See all 18 reviews.
