Format: Paperback
Economics of Crime by Hellman and Alper is a very good title if you want to start studying the subject of the economic approach of crime. It is very comprehensive (it discusses several kinds of crimes, like theft, murder, prostitution, drugs, etc.), but it has its limitations, since it is made, in the words of the authors, for an "audience with limited background in economics". If you have a good knowledge of economic theory, you'll probably find this book too simple. However, if you don't have any knowledge of economics whatsoever, this book may be too difficult for you.

A paradigm shift in criminal justice science requires the type of information contained in the book.Every criminal justice scholar should have smattering knowledge of economics and the book provides much morethat.The book is highly recommended and i applaud such a noble effort.

The last reviewer pretty much nailed it...If you like graphs, formulas, hookers, cartels, heroin trade, and murder ..Then you will LOVE this book....Some of the econ stuff is pretty simplistic...It even tells you what a SUPPLY curve looks like in the beginning..I give it one extra star for the prostitution GRAPHS...W00t!!!
