Item description for Pioneering Perspectives in Criminology: The Literature of 19th Century Criminological Positivism by David M. Horton...
PIONEERING PERSPECTIVES IN CRIMINOLOGY: THE LITERATURE OF 19TH CENTURY CRIMINOLOGICAL POSITIVISM is suitable as either a supplementary text for an introductory undergraduate course in criminology, or as a primary text in advanced criminology courses offered at the master's or doctorate levels of study. This text gives students the opportunity to read firsthand the original, period literature of the nineteenth century that laid the foundations for many of the most intriguing and thought-provoking theoretical explanations for crime causation, some of which are even current in the public and political discourse today. The articles in this anthology are the basis of modern criminological theory that both professors and students will find interesting, instructive, and enlightening. Organized into three broad categories, the anthology includes articles about biological explanations, social and physical environmental explanations, and cosmicological explanations.
