Crime in Biological, Social, and Moral Contexts


The diversity and richness of biosocial theory is illustrated in this volume which introduces numerous views on the biological and social causes of criminality and pro/antisociality. Contributors outline basic assumptions of the biosocial perspective; examine various evolutionary, genetic, and neurochemical aspects of criminality; and then stretch existing knowledge to new theoretical limits. This volume is intended to alert social scientists, particularly criminologists, of recent developments in this field.
