Criminology is a dynamic and evolving field of study. In recent decades, the study of the causes, development, prevention, and treatment of juvenile delinquency and adult crime has produced many important discoveries. This volume address two questions about crucial topics facing criminology—from causation to prevention to public policy: Where are we now? What does the future hold? This book has been written by more than forty scholars from across the world. Chapters present the future of research, policy, and practice in the discipline. They examine five important areas of criminological knowledge (development and causation, criminal careers and justice, prevention, intervention and treatment, and public policy).
