Since the path finding work of Cornish and Clarke and other rational choice approaches to criminal behaviour, little work has been done on offender decision-making during crime in order to better understand the rationales behind offender'"s actions and factors that may influence decisions made by the offender. Offender decision making and crime commission can be best highlighted by using crime scripts, which are designed to help identify every stage of the crime-commission process, the decisions and actions that must be taken at each stage, and the resources ' ; such as criminal cast, props, and suitable locations ' ; required for effective action at each step. This book brings together leading scholars in this area for the first time, not only to provide a synthesis of key research in rational choice and offender decision-making, but also to further help develop this field.
