The Criminal Event: Perspectives in Space and Time 2nd Edition

Vincent Sacco, Leslie Kennedy

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 1996
  • 288 Pages

Overview

Sacco/Kennedy is a concise, economical text that offers a unifying element to aid student understanding of the material presented. The organizing tool ("the criminal event") presents crime as consisting of many facets, and it shows the relationships between the various facets of crime. With an emphasis on spatial analysis, the authors examine crime from all sides, what motivates people to commit crime, who suffers and how, and how society should respond.
