Description

The narrated text of Revealing® Criminology, by Maureen Outlaw, Ph.D. Revealing® Criminology includes twelve modules (corresponding to textbook chapters) that cover the basics of modern Criminology. The first three modules discuss the definition and popular understanding (social construction) of crime, the measurement of crime, and key trends and patterns in crime in the United States. The fourth through seventh modules critique the major criminological theories, from the classical school and trait theories to social structure and social process theories and critical criminology. Each of the next four modules covers a major type of crime: violent crime, property crime, public order and organized crime, and white-collar and corporate crime. The final module examines the harm caused by different kinds of crime, as well as how society responds to crime. The text is written to make the material accessible without oversimplifying. Most sections of each module also include a “Make it Real” segment intended to bring the material into a specific context to deepen students’ understanding of the subject matter. The material presented in Revealing® Criminology is consistent with contemporary criminology and its reliance on criminal law. At the same time, it frequently reminds readers of how the definitions and understanding of crime are created and maintained within our stratified society and that issues of race, social class, gender, and age color them. This unique combination provides students with the basic information and tools they need to understand crime in American society, while encouraging them to challenge their own preconceived notions of crime.
