Introduction to Criminology: Theories, Methods, and Criminal Behavior

Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Introduction to Criminology, 10th edition.

The SAGE edge site for Introduction to Criminology by Frank E. Hagan and Leah E. Daigle offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.


Introduction to Criminology, Tenth Edition, is a comprehensive introduction to the study of criminology, focusing on the vital core areas of the field—theory, method, and criminal behavior. With more attention to crime typologies than most introductory texts, Hagan and Daigle investigate all forms of criminal activity, such as organized crime, white collar crime, political crime, and environmental crime. The methods of operation, the effects on society and policy decisions, and the connection between theory and criminal behavior are all explained in a clear, accessible manner.

Harris of Georgia State University, and Melissa Thorne of the University of Louisiana at Monroe for developing the ancillaries on this site.
