Summary

Two of the most prominent criminologists working today bring together twenty-six of the nation's top experts in the sociology, psychology, and economics of predatory crime. They deliver an inclusive and authoritative account of the latest findings on the most persistent and controversial questions in this complex issue. Crime explores reality-based policy alternatives that have the potential to restore the confidence in public safety that is vital to a strong civil society.
