Hardback. New and Revised edn. An introduction to sociological theories of crime. The author has tried to underline the social components in the etiology of crime and delinquency which are often overlooked, believing that factors operating in the general social framework contribute greatly to the origins of crime, and have a direct bearing on methods of treatment and, above all, prevention. In preparing this new edition, the author took the opportunity to refer both in the text and in footnotes to research and other relevant publications that have appeared since writing the original draft some 4yrs previously. The Index has been expanded accordingly and a revised Bibliography is presented. The criminal statistics in Appendix III have been brought up to date. The original argument, however, remains unaltered. With Appendices and Index. 256pp. 8vo. h/back. With inked-out name insc. to ffep o/w Nr. F. in Nr. F. dw.
