We are delighted to announce the release of The Oxford Handbook of Offender Decision Making. The handbook is an edited volume of 33 chapters written by scholars who are experts on various aspects of offender decision making. The contributors include NSCR colleagues Marie Lindegaard, Stijn Ruiter and Frank Weerman, former NSCR colleagues Margit Averdijk and Danielle Reynald, and neighbour-colleague Wim Huisman (VU).
Although the issue of offender decision-making pervades almost every discussion of crime and law enforcement, only a few comprehensive texts cover and integrate information about the role of decision-making in crime. The Oxford Handbook of Offender Decision Making provide high-quality reviews of the main paradigms in offender decision-making, such as rational choice theory and dual-process theory. It contains up-to-date reviews of empirical research on decision-making in a wide range of decision types including not only criminal initiation and desistance, but also choice of locations, times, targets, victims, methods as well as large variety crimes including homicide, robbery, domestic violence, burglary, street crime, sexual crimes, and cybercrime. Lastly, it provides in-depth treatments of the major methods used to study offender decision-making, including experiments, observation studies, surveys, offender interviews, and simulations.
