 I also picked up the nominally nonfiction "A Criminal History of Mankind" by
 Colin Wilson. I say "nominally" because although most of the writing seems
 informative and even of high interest to a hardboiled fan like myself,
 Wilson keeps throwing in tangents about the paranormal, of which he's
 apparently an enthusiastic believer. He goes on for something like five
 pages about telepathy. I'm about 150 pages in and he's toned that stuff down
 for a while, but still, I mean, c'mon. Is there a better resource for an
 introductory book on criminology I should look for?
