An Introduction to Life-Course Criminology

Christoffer Carlsson and Jerzy Sarnecki



172 pages




Authors Carlsson and Sarnecki present readers with a comprehensive introduction to life-course criminology, endeavoring to shed light on the question as to why many people engage in crime at one point in their life, then stop, while a small group persist in criminal activity throughout their lives. The authors discuss the methodologies of life-course and longitudinal research; the major theories in life-course criminology; risk, prediction, onset, desistence, and persistence of criminal behavior, and other related subjects. Christopher Carlsson is an independent scholar and author. Jerzy Sarnecki is a faculty member of Stockholm University and the University of Gavle in Sweden. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
