Epidemiological Criminology: A Public Health Approach to Crimeand Violence

Epidemiological Criminology offers an introduction to thesources and methods of epidemiological criminology and shows how toapply these methods to some of the most vexing problems nowconfronting researchers and practitioners in public healthepidemiology, criminology, and criminal justice.

The book describes, explains, and applies the newly formulatedpractice of epidemiological criminology, an emerging disciplinethat finds the intersection across theories, methods, andstatistical models of public health with their corresponding toolsof criminal justice and criminology. The authors show how to applyepidemiological criminology as a practical tool to addresspopulation issues of violence and crime nationally and globally. Inaddition, they look at future directions and the application ofthis emerging field in corrections, public health and law, gangsand gang violence, victimology, mental health and substance abuse,environmental justice, international human rights, and globalterrorism.

For students, the book presents an exciting approach tounderstanding epidemiology as a means with which to tackle some ofthe worst problems for vulnerable populations. For researchers andpolicymakers, the book offers a new methodological perspective thatrecognizes the significance of social disparities and the builtenvironment as factors in the formulation of public health policy,and provides a tool with which to produce more effectiveinterventions, preventive measures, and policy formulations.
