Abstract:

"The criminal population is composed of many types. It is composed of casual offenders who do not differ to any great extent from the ordinary man; it is composed of juvenile offenders; it is composed of insane, weakminded, and epileptic offenders; it is composed of habitual drunkards, beggars, and vagrants; and finally there is a distinct class consisting of habitual offenders against property. It is useless applying the same method of penal treatment to each and all of these classes of offenders. The treatment must be differentiated, and determined as far as practicable by the kind of criminal type to which the offender belongs. In order to effect this object, penal establishments must as far as possible be classified. Where classification of penal establishments is impossible, and where, in consequence, offenders of various types have to be incarcerated in the same establishment, these offenders should be classified in accordance with the type to which they belong, and subjected to a regimen adapted to their class. If these principles of penal treatment were applied to the criminal population it is certain that recidivism would diminish; it is certain that the habitual criminal would become a greater rarity, and, most important of all, it is certain that society would enjoy a greater immunity from crime. This book discusses the female offender"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
