Abstract: 
Nowadays, theorizing is a part of daily life. Many of peaple have special ideas about why and how crimes are being committed. History is replete with general and specific discussions about this subject. Indeed, each theory is an expression of a belief: it is a viewpoint which allows to better recognize our surrounding world. Since human is a complicated creature, theorizing on delinquency, that is the primary causes of delinquency, is almost difficult. When dealing with crimes against humanity, due to complications and sophistications of the crimes, it becomes much more difficult. This paper aims to study several famous criminological theories that can contribute to rationalize these crimes, introduce a basis for systematic analysis, and understand their etiological components. In this regard, since it should not be expected to achieve impeccable interpretations or find main reasons beyond the commitment of these crimes, they are theoretically analyzed. In the current analysis, these crimes will be dealt with initially in terms of several classical theories such as Anomie, Strain, Preferred Association, Social Learning, wich were formerly introduced by criminologists, then they will be benchmarked against some new theories such as governmental crimes and social adaption theories, wich were recently posed by the criminologists in the process of crime analysis. Finally, these theories can interactionally rationalize an important part of the reality of these crimes.
