Riminological Theories: A comparison Between Control Theories and Scocial control Theories of Crime.
This discussion paper is really an introduction to a much larger Seminar paper.
Discussion Papers*: Students will prepare and submit a discussion paper. This paper should cover some of the more important themes and points put forth by the author and discussed in class. It is important to note that such paper will be three pages in length (strictly enforced). The three page minimum and maximum allows students to write clearly and succinctly. In other words, there is no space for gibberish.
