Excerpt from Crimilogy A decade has passed since my book on the applications of crimilogy to criminal law and procedure was published. It grew out of several years of experience with criminals in courts and prisons in this country, and crimilogical research in Europe. At that time it was my intention to follow that book with a Similar one on the applications of crimilogy to penal treatment. Since then the biological, psychological, and Social sciences upon which crimilogy is based have advanced rapidly, and much work has been done within the crimilogical field itself. Hence much Of the crimilogy of a decade or more ago is already obsolete. I have, therefore, abandoned my original plan, and, having commenced at the beginning of the subject, have attempted a comprehensive survey of the whole field of crimilogy. Much of the crimilogical writing heretofore has been more or less unilateral in its character. This has been due almost always to one-sided kwledge, sometimes also to prejudices and preconceived tions. For example, some writers have claimed that crime is due entirely to social causes, others have asserted that it is due entirely or almost entirely to the traits of the criminal himself.
