Classics of Criminology
Joseph E. Jacoby
Waveland Press, 2004 - Social Science - 567 pages
┐If students read only about and not in criminology, their experience is but secondhand, and their conclusions are determined by textbook authors,┐ says Joseph Jacoby in the preface to this edition of his well-known collection, Classics of Criminology. By reading scholarly works in their original form, readers can share in the discovery and unfolding of powerful ideas in each author┐s own words. Classics of Criminology is a compilation of writings produced over the last 240 years. These writings represent the most influential approaches to describing and explaining crime and the social responses to crime. The organization of the collection enables readers to follow the development and application of key ideas from one major author to the next.
