Advances in Criminological Theory
Series Editor(s): William S. Laufer and Freda Adler
The Advances in Criminological Theory Series is the first series exclusively dedicated to the dissemination of original work on criminological theory. It was created to overcome the neglect of theory construction and validation in existing publications, as well as to further the free exchange of ideas, to broaden the discourse on traditional theories and to explore new insights that challenge old ways of explaining crime. The series ranges widely, covering theoretical growth from postulates to logically derived hypotheses to testing and analysis with particular emphasis on reformulations and new applications of existing paradigms. It is a rich collection that delves into the history of the discipline, organizes past and emerging knowledge, explores the current status of theoretical development and opens pathways for future exploration.
