Criminology and Crime

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Criminology and Crime.

Criminology is the study of crime: its causes, its history, and its prevention. Criminologists experience much crossover with other disciplines, as they are also concerned with the psychology of criminals, the social contexts that give rise to crime in specific geographical and demographical locations, and the systems of punishment that serve to confine or perpetuate criminal activity. Crime and punishment function uniquely in each society. Therefore, criminologists concerned with crime theory are interested in comparing crime trends in different societies.
