In this book the editors consider the neglected factor of religion in the formula concerning the etiology and treatment of crime. Every chapter has as its aim the integration of knowledge about religion, values, and crime. Together they go beyond the constraints of those who have neglected one or another of those phenomena, as well as the limitations of theorists whose assertions have not been tested by research, and researchers whose evidence has not been theoretically elaborated. This volume revives longstanding questions, and poses new ones through the integration of previously distinct disciplines and modes of analysis, to move toward a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of the dimensions and aspects involved in crime.
