The sciences of epidemiology and criminology have long overlapped in their focus. While behavioural and biomedical scientists have long studied aberrant behaviour and its root causes, there continue to exist fragmented theories, methods, and analytical models that take no note of the interrelated nature of public health and criminal justice as sciences. Waltermaurer and Akers bring together leading researchers and practitioners in a book that transcends and merges the disciplines of public health and criminal justice, epidemiology and criminology. For students, the book presents an exciting and leading-edge branch of criminology research with which to tackle complex social problems. For researchers, the book offers a comprehensive perspective that recognizes the significance of health disparities and the social environment as factors in the formulation of criminological research methods, prevention interventions, and evidence-based policy.
