Editorial Reviews


“Broad intellectual range, curiosity, deep and profound knowledge and authenticity. The whole spirit of Shlomo Shoham’s reasoning is both refreshing and challenging. A great book.”  —Dr. Manfred Wimmer, Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research

“Those who have grown weary of the staleness and triteness of conventional criminology will find much that is fresh in Professor Shoham's compelling study. He shows with admirable detail and conviction how art, crime, and madness emerge from the existential projects of deviants and agents of social control alike. Professor Shoham has exquisitely prepared his flavor of interdisciplinary criminology in this volume.”  —Gregory J. Howard, Western Michigan University
