Only Partially Learned

There are many other, more limited lessons, especially about doing research and teaching, that could be shared. They are too numerous to detail here and can only be transmitted effectively through long-term teacher-student or colleague-colleague interactions. Moreover, those lessons are dynamic, growing and shifting with experience and new situations. The nine lessons of criminology noted in the previous paragraph, however, are fundamental. They rest on solid principles with enduring significance. I wish I had learned them a lot earlier in my academic life.
