"Professor Chad Posick's The Development of Criminological Thought is a thoughtful, interesting, and ebullient examination of theories of crime from antiquity to the present. With careful attention to the social and historical events that contextualize and frame criminological ideas and keen insights into the disciplinary and ideological skirmishes within academic criminology, Posick's book is valuable not only as a primer on theory but also on the craft of criminology. After reading the book, it is clear why Posick is one of the leading young criminologists in the United States." - Matt DeLisi, Professor in the Department of Sociology, Iowa State University, USA, and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Criminal Justice "Situating the subject matter historically, culturally, and academically, Chad Posick offers a comprehensive and up-to-date view of criminological theorizing, skillfully showing how various theoretical explanations of crime would hold across time and space. The author has an easiness to synthetize and clearly present the main theories of delinquency, crime, and criminal victimization, as well as the most recent theoretical developments, including those that focus on contemporary transnational and international crime issues. Carefully written, interesting, accessible, and highly informative, this remarkable book is a pleasure to read." - Viviana Andreescu, Associate Professor of Justice Administration, University of Louisville, USA
