  • Although this book was written long ago the problem I have with it is that the author strongly advocates the concept of eugenics in determining what is criminal and what should be done. Therefore I can only in good conscience give it 1 star.


  • An Informative ReadThis book is quite old, it was written for criminal sociology of the late 1880s. However, some of the observations of the penal system then and still ring true to the penal system today.



  • A lot of theories written as factual without any evidence to support it. Not very well written - Would not recommend.
