Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Criminology has entered into a new era in which standard ideas are being revised or replaced by fresh theoretical and empirical investigations. In The Future of Criminology, Rolf Loeber and Brandon Welsh capture the field's dynamic nature by pulling together, under one cover, diverse ideas of where criminology should head. Written by leading scholars, the volume's contributions provide lucid and compelling assessments of how best to think about crime and its control. Every scholar should keep this book close at hand and consult it regularly."--Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor, University of Cincinnati

"Inspired by David Farrington, one of the world's foremost scholars of criminology, The Future of Criminology is designed to be a 'state of the art' collection of essays delineating criminology's contribution to our understanding of crime prevention and its control. It succeeds admirably as a diverse group of leading scholars summarize, integrate, and extend previous work on child delinquency, criminal careers, psychopathology, high-risk families and communities, and experimental criminology. Researchers, policymakers, and students will benefit greatly from a close study of its chapters."-- Joan Petersilia, Adelbert H. Sweet Professor of Law, Stanford Law School

"This set of contributions, by forty world-renowned criminologists, constitutes a cutting-edge volume for future generations of scholars to take the baton from David Farrington."--Gerben Bruinsma, Director of Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement, Amsterdam
