3. Criminal Anthropology.

  • Havelock Ellis

After an interval of thirteen years, Prof. Lombroso has at length published the second (but not the last) volume of his great work on the criminal man. In the meanwhile the first volume has passed through several editions, adding so considerably to its size that a portion is now thrown into this second volume. At the same time, owing partly to the subject of the book, partly to the originality and audacity of its conclusions, “L'Uomo Delinquente” has gained for its author a wider reputation than has ever before fallen to an investigator into morbid psychology. It has been translated into the chief European languages; an English translation is at length about to appear in America, and it has everywhere given rise to controversy.
