"Cesare Lombroso, the Italian psychiatrist and criminal anthropologist, is almost universally recognized as the founder of scientific criminology... For the first time, under one cover, this Lombroso omnibus gives us access to the complete range of literature by and about Lombroso and the development of criminal anthropology - and to fascinating ephemera as well. This material is extremely valuable partly for what it shows about the types of sources from which turn-of-the-century readers in English-speaking countries first learned about Lombroso, and partly because many of his articles published in the English language periodical press have been hitherto unknown to researchers. Moreover, these valuable contributions in the periodical literature demonstrate that late nineteenth and early-twentieth-century general readers had a keen interest in Lombroso's work. This work, in sum, is extraordinarily useful not only for what it tells us about criminal anthropology, but also for what it reveals about the dissemination of Lombroso's ideas... This book makes an exceedingly important contribution to our knowledge of a major figure, and of developments in criminology connected with that figure, whose full significance is only beginning to be realized. This omnibus is unquestionably a classic piece of research not only in the historical development of Lombrosian positivistic criminology, but in archival bibliography as well." - (From the Commendatory Preface) Nicole Rafter, Ph.D., Oxford University"
