I am a Graduate Student. I bought my Kindle DX and the subsequent books (which includes the one for this review) to help with my reading research. Unfortunately, and to my surprise and dismay, there are no page numbers for me to make reference to. There is a "location number" (whatever that means), but no page numbers. I cannot use the book as a resource because I cannot properly cite the work without the page number. I am a very unhappy customer.

I found Michael Dow Burkhead's discussion of this history of theory of criminolgy refreshing and informative. It is an extremely interesting read and should be on the reading list of every psychology, sociology, and criminology student. It is a comprehensive review of the subject. Dr. Burkhead's discussion is very interesting and readable. He appears to have no research axe to grind and makes the important point that criminologists often fail to utilize what we already know about criminals and criminolgy. He even uses some appropriate humor in his discussion which I found particulary refreshing. As a psychologist who has worked in criminal institutions for over 25 years I found his book many times affirming and reaffirming my experiences with criminals. This book will be on the reading list of all future interns I supervise.
