It gives me a very special pleasure to write a brief foreword to this excellent work. When, at the University of Pennsylvania in the early 1960s, we established a program of study and research leading to a Master of Arts degree in criminology, one of the first participants was a young man who was to become the first recipient of the degree. He is the author of this work in which the achievement of several aims is sought through a study of the phenomena of crime in Australia during the present century.
