Get a book entitled Breaking and Entering, was written by Paul F. Cromwell and published by SAGE Publications, Incorporated. This book was released on 11 April 1991 with total pages 130. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. How do burglars go about their business? What do they fail to do before, during and after a crime? How do they perceive the criminal justice system and its sanctions? Breaking and Entering answers these questions and others concerned with the decision-making processes which burglars employ. The authors use a sensitive ethnographic method which has resulted in a detailed account of the `criminal mind'; they explore the minutiae of `fencing' stolen goods and an assessment of the extent to which the criminal justice system deters, or perhaps encourages, the initiating or continuing of a criminal career.
