A great place to start for this type of information would be JSTOR or the Encyclopedia of Crime and Justice, which can be found on the TCTC library website:

When searching, be careful about which terms you use. You will want to do more than just use the terms "neoclassical" or "classical" because these terms are more commonly associated with economic theory, and this will give you a lot of irrelevant results. Do some background research first and use the big names of the dominant thinkers or specific philosophies that drove classical theories of crime and justice.

A great overview of the relationship between classical neoclassical theories, as well as other major schools of thought in criminology, can be found here
