Modelling the Criminal Lifestyle: Theorizing at the Edge of Chaos

Modelling the Criminal Lifestyle: Theorizing at the Edge of Chaos (Palgrave's Frontiers in Criminology Theory) by Glenn D. Walters
English | 3 Jan. 2018 | ISBN: 3319577700 | 320 Pages | PDF | 3.19 MB

This book offers Walters's latest evolution of criminal lifestyle theory. It introduces the concept of criminal thought content to illustrate how the potential interplay between what offenders think and their thought processes can greatly aid our understanding of both crime and criminals. In this new study on criminal behaviour, Walters calls for criminological theory to be placed within a broader scientific context, and provides us with several key models which embrace constructs from numerous important theories including: the general theory of crime, social cognitive and social learning theories, general strain theory, psychopathic personality theories of crime, and labelling theory.
