Nelson - Since it was first published in 1987, Criminology: A Canadian Perspective has been used to introduce this field to more than 100,000 students across the country. At the time the first edition came out, most criminology courses in Canada were taught using American texts. It was our intention to provide a text that was written by Canadians, for Canadians. Over the last three decades, the discipline of criminology has grown from a few widely scattered faculty members to a large community of academics, researchers, practitioners, and students. The ninth edition of Criminology: A Canadian Perspective continues to reflect their work. That said, criminology remains an underfunded discipline in Canada relative to many other countries. That is why much of the new theoretical and empirical work in the field continues to come from the United States and Europe. This new edition represents our continued effort to provide you with the best Canadian scholarship in combination with the most relevant research from other countries.
