Classic and Contemporary Readings in Sociology introduces the reader to sociological issues, theories and debates, providing extracts of primary source material, from both classical and contemporary theorists. Theorists are examined within their historical and sociological framework and the text provides an analysis of developments in sociological thought and research. The text is divided into four main sections: Part One, Origins and Concepts, surveys the history of the discipline of sociology and examines key themes which have influenced sociological theorising and investigation, in particular, social control, culture and socialisation. Parts Two and Four, Sociological Theories and Sociological Research, include a number of readings from the founding theorists and investigators, including Auguste Comte, Emile Durkheim, Karl Marx, Max Weber and Charles Booth, and also include more recent theoretical writing and research approaches. The focus on theory and research is extended by a selection of readings centred around the theme of Differences and Inequalities (Part Three); these readings provide students with examples of work from an area where sociological theorising and research has been widely applied.

Victimology is an important area of study in criminology as an academic subject, but is also taken seriously by governments and agencies in their assessment of criminal behaviour and their policies on crime. Victimology addresses questions such as: Why are certain people or groups of people victims of crime? Why do some crimes go unreported? Why do victims respond in the way that they do? What can the state do to stop certain groups becoming victims? How can victims be supported following a crime? This reader brings together some of the classic readings in criminology, dating back to the origins of victimology as a subject during the 1940s. It also includes more recent articles which examine newer issues in victimology such as corporate crime, state crime and religious effects and implications on the subject. The book also explores the ongoing development of policy and theories of victimology. Victims and Victimisation: A Reader brings together, for the first time, these classic and contemporary readings in criminology. It also includes an editorial introduction to the volume and an introduction to each thematic section. It provides key reading for students of criminology, law and sociology.

READINGS IN DEVIANT BEHAVIOR: CLASSIC AND CONTEMPORARY brings together over 50 articles in 16 chapters. The text is organized traditionally, beginning with a discussion on the nature of deviance followed by material on theories and perspectives to explain deviance and ending with articles that discuss forms of deviant behavior. Each chapter begins with an introduction and concludes with questions for discussion. The mix of contemporary and classic readings explores the theoretical approaches to deviant and contemporary issues. High-tech, white-collar crime and gender issues are included. This text parallels the organization of the best-selling Clinard/Meier text but is general enough to be used with other textbooks or as a stand-alone textbook.
