Wright, John Paul

     Conservative criminology : a call to restore balance to the social sciences / John Paul Wright and Matt DeLisi. - New York : Routledge,Taylor & Francis Group, 2016.

Conservative Criminology serves as an important counterpoint to virtually every other academic text on crime. Hundreds of books have been written about crime and criminal justice policy from a variety of perspectives, including Marxist, liberal, progressive, feminist, radical, and post-modernist. To date, however, no book has been written outlining a conservative perspective on crime and criminal justice policy. Not a polemic against liberalism, Conservative Criminology nonetheless focuses on how liberal ideology affects the study of crime and criminals and the policies that criminologist advocate.

Being exchanged at the point of formation, these assumptions constitute the consideration.
