Crime: Its Cause and Treatment
Among lawyers, none are revered like Clarence Darrow. The Ohio attorney rose to international fame as the defense attorney in two Trials of the Century: the Leopold and Loeb case and the Scopes Monkey Trial. In Crime: Its Cause and Treatment, Darrow explains his interpretation of the origins of crime. He discusses events in the background of criminals that lead them to crime, as well as the natural phenomena and psychological faults that can cause antisocial behavior. In this seminal work of crimonology, Darrow considers crime the way doctors treat disease by identifying symptoms and causes.
