Zimbardo is an American psychologist at Stanford University and the mastermind behind the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment (The Story). From the results of his study, Zimbardo explains the Lucifer Effect and how morally righteous people can do malicious things. The effect of both the one’s current situation and one’s personality contribute to one’s expression of behavior. Therefore, by changing the situation, personalities can emerge that were once suppressed and scarce. Three prominent examples of the Lucifer Effect are the Holocaust, Milgram’s Obedience Study, and at the Abu Ghraib prison.
The second major thesis in this book is the significant role that a racial identity has in our society. How we see others have an impact on how we create laws and access to quality education, financial and social resources. Furthermore, how we see ourselves is a determining factor in our individual success in those areas. Dr. Tatum provides the reader with non-objective information that supports her thesis, while also providing information that contradicts or expresses a different point of view from her thesis. The definition she uses to define racism is supported by facts and other reliable sources.

Situational crime prevention (SCP) and rational choice theory (RCT), together, provide an insightful explanation as to why people commit crimes and what can be done to deter them. Much of the work done in RCT and SCP was founded by Derek Cornish and Ronald V. Clarke, who wanted to understand the decision-making process of potential offenders and focus on the spatial and situational factors that make such crime possible (Farrell and Hodgkinson, 2015). This paper aims to explore SCP and its relationship to RCT, as well as analyze the works of Keith Hayward and Graham Farrell in their discussion of these ideas. This paper has four objectives: first, the paper will discuss SCP and RCT and explain the link between the two concepts. Second, this paper will examine Hayward 's discussion of RCT, SCP, and cultural criminology.
