Major Forms of Crime by Robert F. Meier

Crime and criminal typologies have not lived up to their 'promises' because criminologists have been unable to agree on the 'best' typology. Meier believes that the time is right to take stock. He has collated articles by ten leading social scientists, who show the great diversity of current criminality. The result is a valuable reference book covering subjects like victimization, criminal careers, theories of criminality, social and legal reactions to kinds of crime, and future research possibilities in criminology. It forms an ideal supplement to textbooks for advanced criminal justice, deviant behaviour, and criminology courses.
