"In a highly readable and superbly researched study, Dr. Rafter traces the origins of the evocative concept of the 'defective delinquent'. She explores the complex origins of biocriminology, which can be traced to several discrete developments of the mid-nineteenth century, the most important of which was the discovery of abnormal mental states distinct from flagrant insanity... Dr. Rafter never allows us to forget the implications of her work for modern policy-making." -- Phillip Jenkins, American Historical Review
