Criminal acts are often the result of a number of influences. Socialization and processes based in the family influence behaviours, as do experiences at school, among peers, in the workplace, and in broader society. Media is a critical factor here too. All of these experiences and interactions with others have a "ripple effect": some are criminogenic, most are not. Moreover, the ripple effect suggests that whether we focus on the prevention, intervention, or suppression of crime, the approaches are intertwined. A readable, attractive, and student-first text, Criminology , second Canadian edition is rich with pedagogical elements that promote and foster critical thinking.
