A Criminologist’s Life: Essays in Honor of the Criminological Legacy of Francis T. Cullen honors the vast scholarly contributions of Francis T. "Frank" Cullen as well as the immeasurable influence that he has had on the field for over 40 years.

With over 400 publications and more than 65,000 citations to his work, Frank Cullen has left an undeniable mark on the fields of criminology and criminal justice. Although most well-known for his work on criminological theory and rehabilitation, Frank also has profusely published in and shaped the areas of white-collar crime, the use of meta-analytic techniques to organize knowledge, public opinion on crime and punishment, and the sexual victimization of college women. However, Frank’s legacy on the field is not only limited to his scholarly contributions. Frank has served as a mentor to countless students, colleagues, and others in the field helping support and guide the next generation of scholars. The current volume is thus organized to recognize both his scholarly work and mentoring, as well as to provide an opportunity for Frank to reflect on his career "in his own words."

The result is a collection of essays from Frank’s former students, colleagues, and friends written to pay homage to the more than 40 years of work has done to advance criminological knowledge and shape the field.
