Publisher Comments:

Argues that criminal activity is largely rational, shaped by rewards and penalties it offers versus the outcome of other available activities.

Synopsis:

This timely new edition includes new chapters on neighborhood safety, criminal penalties and opportunities, incapacitation, rehabilitation, crime in American culture, and gun control; and thoroughly revised chapters on police-community relations, the death penalty and crime and public policy. The new introduction is both a reply to criticisms of the first edition and an incisive analysis of how and why the public debate about crime has been fundamentally altered.
