It was only during the late 1970s, according to Williams & McShane (1994:221), that criminologists realised that none of the theories or perspectives aimed at explaining criminal or deviant behaviour assumed a rational, thinking individual. Before this period, therefore, there was no criminological theory or perspective which descriptionbed and explained this assumption.
