What kind of choices does a hardened criminal make? What belief systems are these choices based on? <B>The Criminal Lifestyle </B>approaches these questions by examining how various biological, sociological and psychological factors interact to bring about criminal behaviour. Walters develops a model of crime as a lifestyle and shows that this concept is historically, cross-nationally and empirically valid. This groundbreaking book will be of interest to psychologists and sociologists as well as criminologists.
