Product Overview

This thought-provoking study of the crime problem in America provides an in-depth look at the sociological forces that are dominant in todays society and examines the possible influence of certain contemporary values and perceptions on criminal activity, the quality of justice in the American courts, and the attitude of the general public. The author discusses the various factors that can affect or encourage criminal behavior and relates these directly to the way people feel and respond to the incidence of crime and its punishment, and to a growing lack of confidence in the criminal justice system. Crime in America is first presented in a factual context, followed by a discussion of its cultural influences, and finally with a consideration of its criminal law aspects. *Author: Saney, Parviz *Series Title: Contributions in Economics and Economic History, *Series Number: 11 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 215 *Publication Date: 1986/11/07 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.21 x 6.14 x 0.56 inches
