Description

Taking a well-rounded, interdisciplinary approach, Canadian Criminology draws on a wealth of research, theory, powerful examples, and the latest Canadian statistics to provide a comprehensive and accessible overview of the field today. The fourth edition features new material on a wide variety of current and controversial topics—including marijuana legalization, stop-and-frisk policing policies, the fentanyl crisis, and the addition of gender identity and gender expression to the protected characteristics under the Human Rights Act—to keep readers up to date and engaged. Canadian Criminology offers students the foundation they need to think critically about how we define criminal acts, why these acts occur, and what Canadian society should do about it.
