How do burglars go about their business? What do they fail to do before, during and after a crime? How do they perceive the criminal justice system and its sanctions? Breaking and Entering answers these questions and others concerned with the decision-making processes which burglars employ. The authors use a sensitive ethnographic method which has resulted in a detailed account of the 'criminal mind'; they explore the minutiae of 'fencing' stolen goods and an assessment of the extent to which the criminal justice system deters, or perhaps encourages, the initiating or continuing of a criminal career.
