- (1835–1909)Italian pioneer of criminology. Lombroso, a medical man and a professor at Turin, laid the foundations of modern criminology. At first his work classified only the inherited physical and mental traits in the ‘born criminal’, but he later gave more recognition to factors of environment. He was an early supporter of penal reform and the rehabilitation of criminals. Among his many books, the major work published in English translation was Crime, its Causes and Conditions (1911). He became interested in the Zionist movement through Max NORDAU.
