Summary
"The authors of this text address key questions surrounding criminal propensity by discussing studies of the life-course perspective - criminological research linking biological factors associated with criminality and social environmental agents thought to cause, facilitate, or otherwise influence one's tendency toward criminal activity. The text offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary understanding of the current thinking in the field about criminal behavior over the course of a lifetime and ends on a positive note, highlighting interventions proven effective and illustrating how the life-course perspective has contributed to a greater understanding of the causes of crime." "Designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in criminal justice and criminology, sociology, and psychology programs, this supplement provides novel insights into criminal pathology for courses such as Criminological Theory and Introduction to Criminology."--BOOK JACKET
