The mythology of crime and criminal justice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Challenges assumptions and misconceptions about crime and the criminal justice system, providing a provocative alternative to traditional textbooks for undergraduates. Traces the social construction of issues such as child abduction, murder, white collar crime, drugs, police work, prisons, and the myth of a lenient criminal justice system, from the creation of mythical trappings to the development of social policy based on public perceptions. For undergraduates in criminology and criminal justice.
