Excerpt from The Cause and Cure of Crime The emphasis of Professor Henderson upon the fact that crime is not a disease is refreshing in view of many recent utterances, and indicates the sane view of the author upon the cause and cure of crime. This little book is offered in the expectation that it may present an outline of the problems and at the same time offer some suggestions to police officers, students, and members of courts on the matter of jails, influences of surroundings, and lack of education and right home conditions upon the creation of criminals. The well-known work of the author, Prison Reform and Criminal Law, should make this book equally welcome.
