Over a long period of time, individual-oriented factors contributing to crime have been neglected in the field of criminological research and in general textbooks. Milieu-oriented factors and theoretical explanations dominated the study-field of Criminology. The purpose of this article is to give a broad overview of the limitations with regard to individual-oriented factors in a number of well-known textbooks on Criminology and to suggest an individual-oriented integrated model for explaining criminal behaviour. The theoretical model will be explained by means of a case study.
