Editorial Reviews

Review

“The greatest single strength is the uniqueness of topic and approach. Other strengths are the selected topics and structure.” (Scott Vollum)

“This text might lead to an intellectual movement in the community of criminology, stimulate criminologists to revise current criminological theories, and help criminologists formulate new criminological theories.” (Hua-Lun Huang)
