Editorial Reviews

Review

This is the first book to include an original criminal typology that systematically integrates circumstances, situations, and central life themes that lead to certain types of crimes. This absolute gem of a book provides a vast wealth of insights on seven primary categories of crimes including etiological and motivational factors, environmental and situational influences, and the full range of treatment alternatives. This is the best book I have read in a long time bridging qualitative research on thousands of offenders and ex-offenders with practical implications. It is a 'must read' for every criminal justice and forensic social work professional.
