The Thorsten Sellin & Sheldon and Eleanor Glueck Award (established in 1974) is given in order to call attention to criminological scholarship that considers problems of crime and justice as they are manifested outside the United States; internationally or comparatively.  Preference is given for scholarship that analyzes non-U.S. data, is published predominantly outside of U.S. criminological journals, and in granting the award, brings new perspectives or approaches to the attention of the members of the Society.  The recipient need not speak English, however, his/her work must be available in part at least, in the English language (either by original publication or through translation).
