Example text

This question appears, at the first glance, to be suitable to a simple pragmatical solution, but behind it we find the "unresolved relationship" between criminology and penal law in Germany as understood for a long time in the past. Some remarks on this point should be sufficient here because meanwhile the solution appears to be considerably closer at hand even if it is not put into practice completely yet. On the other hand, this problem, being the "classical" problem of German criminology, cannot be ignored completely.

By this situation we are reminded of a word of L. RADZINOWICZ. During the years from 1958 to 1960 Radzinowicz tried, by means of extensive study travel, to obtain a thorough impression of the respective levels of criminology in the larger countries of the Western hemisphere. The chapter of his report "In Search of Criminology" (1961) treating the German situation was called "Unresolved Relationship". This expression was meant to show, among other things, the relationship between penal law dogma and criminology, a relationship which seemed to him still unresolved, above all with respect to the practical organisation.

As official course programs were used for the inquiry, there exists still another minor source of possible mistakes: Because of short-term changes it cannot be avoided that in some cases the courses actually given diverge from the ones announced previously in the program. For a better understanding, the description comprises only those courses that were offered either expressly under the designation "criminology" or at least under similar titles such as "criminal phenomenology", "juvenile delinquency", "practical criminology", and so forth.
