Course Description: This course explores the motivations underpinning particular types of criminal behavior. It begins with an overview of various definitions and ways of measuring crime and then examines the causes of specific offences ranging from graffiti to animal cruelty, armed robbery, illicit drug use, and terrorism. Wherever possible, the words and rationales of offenders are used to give a more grounded insight into the reasons for criminal behavior. The course investigates criminal events which feature prominently in the public mind and/or the popular media; the relationship between the perceived causes of crime and responses to criminal offending by police, courts, and corrections; and the implicit models of personhood, choice, gender, economic position, geographic location, peer group dynamics, and other variables underpinning particular theories of criminal behavior and formal and informal mechanisms for controlling such behavior.
