Review:

The syntheses in these three short studies are a remarkable contribution to criminology. I could not put the book down once I had started it....What I found new and fascinating was that today's major issues and policy changes had already been experienced by Europeans in the sixteenth century...Compelling.>>> (Harold E. Pepinski)
