|List Name||How To Prevent Crime (Crime Prevention)|
|Purpose:||Crime is in the news. There are drive-by shootings, school shootings, senseless killings. Sad faces often ask, "Why?" Research doctors and other analysts have studied other behaviors. Have they studied crime? Have they studied what turns noncriminals into criminals? This list discusses the answer: YES. And provides an extensive overview and bibliography at http://medicolegal.tripod.com/preventcrime.htm.
As the medical research process is not well known, this list also recommends background material at http://medicolegal.tripod.com/statisticsrhowdocsknow.htm (site explaining the medical research process in both current terms, and pertinent portions of the history of medicine and medical research).
While this site cannot teach criminology, it can provide you insight and a mass of bibliographic information and references, with practical advice.
The site is both scholarly, and - b e advised up front - shrill (this is a life and death amtter for any of us, including the web author).
And sadly, there must be some reference made to the hostile political reaction to what doctors found about criminals and how to prevent the criminal-making process. But we not left there fumbling or fuming, the material also suggests what we can do about it. "The life you save may be your own."
