This text for undergraduate and graduate students presents criminological theory in a way that promotes a life-course understanding of antisocial conduct, integrating perspectives from sociology, psychology, biology, medicine, and policy. Part 1 reviews what is known about the biological basis of antisocial behavior, prenatal and perinatal predictions of antisocial behavior, and recent advances in developmental neurobiology. Part 2 examines factors contributing to delinquency in adolescence and early adulthood, such as media violence, substance use, personal exposure to violence, and gangs. Part 3 focuses on crime in adulthood, with chapters on theories and policy implications of life-course criminology, self-control theory, and evolutionary psychological perspectives on men's partner-directed violence. Chapter glossaries are included. DeLisi is affiliated with Iowa State University. Beaver is affiliated with Florida State University. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
