Canadian Criminology Today has been specially tailored to meet the needs of the students preparing for careers in the Canadian Criminal Justice system, including those enrolled in police foundations programs in Ontario. Instructors and students in other university and college programs will also find it an invaluable overview of the discipline.
The Second Canadian edition of Frank Schmallegers pacesetting text presents a realistic view of crime in Canada, focusing on explanations of crime and deviance and the application of this theory to real life examples of criminal behaviour. It stresses the consequences of criminology theory for social policy, describes the practical issues associated with crime control, and discusses Canadian social policies focusing on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and victim restoration.
