Summary

Beginning with a succinct discussion of the administration of criminal justice in the United States, SENSE AND NONSENSE ABOUT CRIME AND DRUGS, FIFTH EDITION, evaluates conservative and liberal views on crime control proposals, guns and crimes, drug policies, the war on drugs, and the legalization of drugs. This text communicates complex ideas about how the criminal justice system operates and is affected by politics at a level that can be read by almost any student. The book concludes with a summary of the evidence and draws some conclusions about crime policy.
