"If you teach security management courses, criminal justice, or criminology classes this title will prove a useful and fact-filled book for you. The text doesn’t use statistics to explain away crime, it simply gives readers and researchers who are trying to verify certain factors a place to start. A major benefit to dedicated users of this text is the inclusion of a companion CD. This makes it easier to search, review, and print out the stats and tables."--Security Management
From the Back Cover
HANDBOOK OF CRIME CORRELATES Lee Ellis Minot State University, Minot, ND Kevin M. Beaver Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL John Wright University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH The Handbook of Crime Correlates gathers over 200 years of worldwide academic research into criminal behavior and consolidates those findings into 400+ tables to tell at a glance the definitive association of those variables to criminal behavior. * How pervasive is homicide worldwide and are homicide rates going up or down? * Is there a relationship between conduct disorder in children and adult criminal behavior? * Does drug addiction primarily precede or postdate criminal behavior? * To what extent do men and women differ in perpetration of specific crime categories? The Handbook of Crime Correlates offers a window into answering these questions by summarizing what the majority findings indicate, and providing the specific references in each case. Findings are broken down by world region, by type of crime, and by whether the variable in question has a positive, negative, or insignificant association to criminal behavior. Criminal behavior is broken down into separate offending categories of violent crime, property crime, drug offenses, sex offenses, delinquency, general and adult offenses, and recidivism. Accompanying each table is a description of what each table indicates in terms of the positive or negative association of specific variables with specific types of crime by region. This book should serve as a critical resource for criminal justice personnel and academics in the social and life sciences interested in criminal behavior. In no other place is such a wealth of academic research on criminal behavior consolidated, clearly indicating how a multitude of variables, from gender and religion to seafood consumption and season, relate to criminal behavior. • Contains over 400 tables of variables studied in relation to criminal behavior • Consolidates 200 years of academic research on criminal behavior • Positions findings by world region for easy comparison • Breaks down criminal behavior by 9 offending categories
