Description

Leading experts review the latest findings and recommendations concerning the roots and prevention of antisocial behavior and crime.

The developmental perspective is becoming increasingly significant in criminology and in research on antisocial and criminal behavior. Developmental criminology can explain the stability of antisocial behavior as well as how it emerges and disappears across the life span.

This volume brings together many of the most renowned scientists in the field. They report the latest findings, explain various phenomena and trajectories of antisocial behavior, and present new research methods. In a series of reviews, they analyze the significance of biological, psychological, and social risk factors in the development of antisocial behavior and show how these findings can be applied not only in crime prevention, criminal justice, and offender treatment, but also in the risk management of young offenders.
