Criminology is a critical examination of the definitions, concepts, theories, and methods sociologists use to explain adult crime and juvenile delinquency. Course materials cover the major perspectives scientists employ in their efforts to determine the character and extent of crime and delinquency in history and society, as well as the institutional response and societal reaction to activities and statuses defined as criminal. As it is the mechanism through which the powerful establish rules, deploy enforcers, and manage public perception, the machinery of social control and its attendant ideologies receive considerable attention.
