This is the first textbook available from the Wadsworth Contemporary Issues in Crime and Justice Series about burglars--why they do what they do, how they do it, and what the general public can do to protect themselves. The authors analyze the decision-making processes employed by burglars and discuss what rational processes are used when contemplating burglary. How do residential burglars select their targets? What environmental factors are used as discriminative cues in target selection? What marketing strategies and outlets do burglars use to fence their stolen goods? Cromwell and Olson also look at the desistance process to help students understand circumstances that may lead offenders to end their criminal activities.

James N. Olson received a Ph.D. in Psychology from UCLA in 1974. As one of the "founding faculty" of The University of Texas-Permian Basin, he has significant experience in the personalized system of instruction (also called mastery learning), and the cognitive and behavioral principles of learning. He was awarded the "Amoco Award" for excellence in teaching (this award evolved into today's "Chancellor's Council Outstanding Teaching Award"), which is given annually to one faculty member at each of The University of Texas' academic campuses. In 1990 he received the President's Award for Excellence in Research. Dr. Olson is the author of three books and numerous journal articles. He is presently Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
