Why Crime? An Integrated Systems Theory of Antisocial Behavior explains why some people are more prone to antisocial behavior than others. Risk factors that increase the probability of antisocial behavior are identified, and provide an in-depth understanding of what produces criminality, deliquency, and deviance. Organized around an integrated systems perspective, the book examines six levels of analysis, from cell to society. Relationships between factors at each of these levels of analysis and antisocial behavior are stated; and a new theory of antisocial behavior and criminality is presented that combines biological, sociological, psychological, anthropological, and economic factors. This book presents an enormous review of literature with more than 1,000 references, making it an excellent source of information for criminologists and law enforcement professionals.

Why Crime? reviews the very latest empirical evidence with regard to the risk factors that produce antisocial and criminal behavior. The authors meaningfully integrate risk factors identified by more than a dozen academic discplines that increase the odds of antisocial behavior and criminality. The result is a new interdisciplinary theory that helps break down traditional barriers and overcomes the “disciplinary myopia” that plagues criminological theory. Unlike the typical criminological theory text, Why Crime? actually advances the state of criminological theory as well as the field of criminology.About the Author:
Matthew Robinson is a professor in the department of government and justice studies at Appalachian State University. Kevin Beaver is a professor of criminology at Florida State University.
