It's all the rage :crime and cultureby Wendy Kaminer
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
A contributing editor to the The Atlantic Monthly finds that American discussions of criminal justice and the death penalty-- including notions of accountability, victimhood, moral agency, and self-control--are driven by a volatile mix of fear, fury, and wishful thinking about simple solutions, and that rational knowledge has become irrelevant. Kaminer doesn't offer answers, but she asks good questions that challenge conventional wisdom on both the political right and the left.
