Breaking and Entering : Burglars on Burglary - 04 edition

Breaking and Entering : Burglars on Burglary (ISBN10: 0534623859; ISBN13: 9780534623852)
ISBN13: 978-0534623852
ISBN10: 0534623859

Summary: This is the first textbook available from the Wadsworth Contemporary Issues in Crime and Justice Series about burglars--why they do what they do, how they do it, and what the general public can do to protect themselves. The authors analyze the decision-making processes employed by burglars and discuss what rational processes are used when contemplating burglary. How do residential burglars select their targets? What environmental factors are used as discriminative cu
es in target selection? What marketing strategies and outlets do burglars use to fence their stolen goods? Cromwell and Olson also look at the desistance process to help students understand circumstances that may lead offenders to end their criminal activities.

Benefits:
  • The ethnographic approach provides students with a first person perspective of criminal behavior, in the words of the offenders.
  • Although the authors present the information through an accessible and interesting writing style, they do not sacrifice academic rigor: the research methodology behind each study is included.
  • The authors discuss how "ordinary people" aid burglars by buying their stolen goods.
  • This text also provides students with a look at desistance-how and why burglars quit.
  • The authors address how an offenders' decision-making process is affected by the presence of co-offenders and the use of drugs and alcohol.
  • This unique text can be packaged with any Wadsworth textbook at a significant discount. Please contact your local Thomson/Wadsworth sales representative for more details.
