Writing as a philosopher, not as a social scientist, the author takes a radically different approach to the study of criminality, asking not "what are the causes of crime?" but "what are the causes of virtue?" Novak concentrates on what builds character and why there is a serious lack of character in our culture and society today.

Michael Novak is the George Frederick Jewett Scholar in Religion, Philosophy, and Public Policy at AEI.
