Criminology is an area of burgeoning growth today and this set makes available a selection of fascinating early studies in the field. A whole variety of issues are explored from crime journalism to prison regime, motoring offences to murder. The volumes discuss variously identification, causation, treatment and prevention of crime and delinquency, as well as the provocation, repression and reoffence of criminals. These volumes have enormous cross-disciplinary appeal within the fields of psychiatry, psychology, sociology, criminology, pathology, social anthropology, social history, sociology of law, and also media and medicine.
