Abstract:

Crime and Information Theory cannot be regarded as a completed research piece, nor does it contain any defensible, statistically supported conclusions or policy recommendations. It is, rather, an introductory approach to crime analysis which addresses the question of how criminals, victims, and police interact, while largely ignoring the question of why criminal events happen. As such, the book aims at obtaining fresh insights into many important facets of crime by structuring the problem and analysis in a fashion fundamentally different from the customary criminological treatment.
