Description

This four-volume collection deals with the causes and prevention of crime as well as the treatment and punishment of its perpetrators. While taking a sociological approach to the subject, the articles gathered in this collection reflect the diversity of related fields and theoretical traditions which inform the study of crime - including economics, history, psychology and anthropology. The set provides an historical overview of the development of the study of crime and a picture of the field as it currently stands.

With a new introduction and a thorough index, this collection is an invaluable resource for those studying this rapidly developing area.
