Overview

Why Crime? : An Integrated Systems Theory of Antisocial Behavior / Edition 1

Why Crime? An Integrated Systems Theory of Antisocial Behavior explains why some people are more prone to antisocial behavior than others. In the book, risk factors from various academic disciplines and levels of analysis that increase the probability of antisocial behavior are identified and critically evaluated. Then, a new theory of antisocial behavior is offered, organized around the "integrated systems perspective" of science, which combines biological, sociological, psychological, anthropological, economic, and other factors into one theoretical model. The book is intended for courses in criminological theory and for in-depth understanding of factors that produce criminality, delinquency, and deviance.
