Advertisement for Crime: Its Cause and Treatment by Clarence Darrow

Just two years before Bobby Franks was murdered, Clarence Darrow had published a 292 page book called "Crime: Its Cause and Treatment". In this book, Darrow discussed, more in laymen's terms and without citations to any scholarly or scientific works, new discoveries in different scientific fields that he was convinced explained human behavior. The Leopold and Loeb case gave Darrow the chance to bring his views about crime into the courtroom.
