"A contemporary synopsis of one of the major criminological theories."
"The writing is very good. The authors include a well-known senior and surging junior colleague whose reputations will add credibility to the authoritative quality of the book."
"I like the writing style of the text. It is written at a level that complements the ability of my students. It is also a fun read and has examples that are real attention-getters."
"Addresses the intersection of child development, brain development, neighborhoods and self-control and crime as well as policy issues."
“Hay and Meldrum provide a masterful and timely synthesis of the disparate literatures on self-control, one of the most important concepts in the study of antisocial behavior and deviance. Their clear, cogent, and objective assessment will not only inform ongoing research, but will also provide direction to the next generation of criminologists.”
"Low self-control has emerged as one of the leading causes of crime and deviance, some would argue the leading cause. This book provides an excellent overview of the large body of research on self-control, both within and outside of criminology. It covers a range of topics, including the varied causes and consequences of low self-control, self-control over the life course, and the policy implications of the self-control research.
“Hay and Meldrum have put together an impressive book that covers the sweeping literature on self-control and its impact on human behavior. This is an indispensable resource for students and scholars interested in understanding one of criminology’s most consistent predictors of criminal behavior.”
"There is little debate that the relationship between self-control and crime over the life-course has been among the most central of all criminological issues over the past quarter-century and the theoretical, empirical, and policy-related contributions have skyrocketed thereby keeping tabs on new findings has been difficult, that is, until now. Hay and Meldrum, two of the field’s most foremost thinkers on self-control have brought together this literature in a careful and easy going way.
