Synopsis

Criminological Theories Bridging the Past to the Future by Suzette Cote

This book is an anthology of 34 previously published articles and book exerpts that focus on the major theories, past and present, that inform criminology today. While there are a variety of readers available in criminological theory, Cote provides a greater emphasis on some of the novel, newer theories, and some of the often overlooked theoretical perspectives - particularly the newer integrative perspectives. Additionally, an innovative section early in the book contains articles looking at the points where theory and research in the fields of criminology and criminal justice merge and diverge. Features/Benefits: * Some new perspectives not often seen in theory readers * There is a greater emphasis on issues of gender, race, and class within criminological theories and criminality giving the book a more contemporary feel. * The anthology includes and expands on topics typically neglected in other texts, namely white-collar crime; developmental criminology; new penology; postmodern and constitutive theories; and integrated theories that consider genetics, psychology, and environmental approaches. * Brief overviews introducing each article discuss the author, the article's important points, and a context for its development and value. * Discussion questions at the end of each theory section.

About the Author

Suzette Cote is Assistant Professor in the Division of Criminal Justice at California State University, Sacramento, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses that primarily deal with criminological theory, sex offenses and offenders, and family violence, child abuse, and elder abuse. She received her law degree with a concentration in Family Law (SUNY at Buffalo School of Law, 1998). Cote's dissertation, Modernity, Risk, and Contemporary Crime Control Strategies as Risk Management: An Analysis of Sex Offender Statutes and the Shift Toward a Risk Society, focuses on the shift in penal practices away from rehabilitation and treatment of individual criminals and towards the management of dangerous classes offenders. A forthcoming publication, Megan's Law in California: The CD-ROM and the Changing Nature of Crime Control, will be published in an edited text, Sexual Violence: Policies, Practices, and Challenges (tentative title) by Debra S. Kelley and James Hodgson (Greenwood Publishing Group).
