Is using the humanities and social sciences (psychology, sociology, law, etc.) to understand the crime, the criminal, the victim, criminality, and society's reaction to crime a science? A crime is the unique combination of a perpetrator, a victim, and a set of circumstances. Its individual and quantitative analysis requires scientific methods and specific intellectual and technical abilities. Emile Durkheim emphasizes that " ...] A number of acts can be observed, all with the external characteristic that once accomplished, they provoke this particular reaction from society known as punishment. We make of them a group sui generis, on which we impose a common rubric. We call any punished act a crime and make crime thus defined the focus of a dedicated science: criminology."

This leading text for courses in Criminology is known for its lucid style, student-oriented approach, and its interdisciplinary global perspective. The Fourth Edition further underscores this unique student-centered approach by making a free student study CD ("Making the Grade") available with every copy of the text. A robust Online Learning Center featuring chapter quizzes with feedback, vocabulary flashcards, interactive exercises, and more is also available. The Adler text comes in two versions, one with, and the other without coverage of the criminal justice system. For schools that retain the traditional criminology course, which includes criminological coverage of criminal justice, "Criminology and the Criminal Justice System, Fifth Edition," is the ideal text. For schools that offer a separate introductory course in criminal justice, "Criminology, Fifth Edition" is the appropriate text.
