ISBN10: 0935732942

Summary: Criminologists Miethe and McCorkle's thought-provoking, accessible book addresses the following questions about crime: Who are the offenders and the victims? What are the major motivators for crime? Are most offenders specialists or generalists? Are they planners or opportunists? What are their criminal histories? How often are co-offenders involved? What are the common features of dangerous places, times, and situational dynamics? How effective are current crime pre
vention strategies?

CRIME PROFILES provides a descriptive summary of seven major forms of crime:
  • Homicide and Aggravated Assault
  • Sexual Assault
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Motor Vehicle Theft
  • Occupational and Organizational Crime
  • Public Order Crimes

Current national data are used to develop profiles of each crime based on characteristics of the offender, the victim, and the situational context. Comparisons within and between crime profiles illustrate similarities and differences in criminal behavior.

Each chapter is organized in the same format--focusing on the particular definitions of the crimes, trends in their frequency of occurrence, the offender profile, the victim profile, situational elements and circumstances, particular subsets of crime syndromes, and crime prevention/intervention strategies. Easy-to-read tables and charts are used to summarize major trends.

CRIME PROFILES
is suitable as a supplement for a variety of courses in criminology, criminal justice, and sociology.
