Most people engage in crime at some point in their lives, but why does almost everybody stop soon after? And, why do a small number of offenders persist in crime? These two questions constitute the core of the field often known as life-course criminology.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to life-course criminology. It covers the dominant theories and methodologies in the field and equips you with all you need to succeed in your studies on the subject.  The book:

  • Discusses the methodologies of life-course and longitudinal research

  • Explains and critiques the major theories of life-course criminology

  • Considers the issues of risk, prediction, onset, persistence and desistance of criminal activity

  • Draws on research from studies in Europe, the UK, US and Australia, including the Stockholm Life-Course Project

Written by two leading figures in the field, this is an authoritative text that will guide you through your studies in life-course criminology, criminal career research, and developmental criminology.
