Criminals on Crime

Seventh Edition

Michael L. Birzer and Paul Cromwell

New to this Edition:

  • Thorough revisions and updates throughout that reflect current scholarship
  • Five new chapters on auto thieves and restrictive deterrence, codes of violence among bar fighters, the illicit drug trade, commercial sex work on Chicago's South Side, and a promising desistence theory grounded in in-depth interviews of drug dealers
  • A reduction in the total number of chapters from twenty-six to twenty-three, providing instructors with a shorter volume that serves as an ideal supplemental reader
