Abstract "This book applies findings from neuroscience, behavioral sciences, and evolutionary biology to persistent issues in criminology to show how the biopsychosocial approach extends and complements traditional sociological theories of crime and approaches to crime. John Braithwaite's facts of crime serve as a longstanding agenda for macro-issues in criminal behavior"-- Provided by publisher.
