Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides a concise overview of a range of crime and delinquency theories. Begins by discussing the philosophical assumptions on which all theories are based and how the different theories can be judged in relation to each other, then describes each theory, identifies its policy implications, and critiques each theory. This second edition contains new study questions, and expanded discussion of biocriminology, race-IQ-crime theory, and anomie theory. Bohm is affiliated with the University of Central Florida.
