A complete revision of the 1982 edition, the "Encyclopedia of Crime & Justice" is a unique interdisciplinary source, dealing with not only law but also sociology, psychology, history and economics. With entries ranging widely from abortion to rape and from family violence to wiretapping, the "Encyclopedia" offers a true mirror of issues dominating today's headlines.

Ohio State Law School professor Dressler and an impressive set of contributors have updated the 1982 Encyclopedia of Crime and Justice, creating a new edition indispensable to academic and law libraries. Covering more than types of crime, the approximately 250 articles range over social causes, laws, and effective means of dealing with crime, addressing contemporary concerns from abortion and terrorism to wiretapping and eavesdropping to euthanasia and protection of juveniles. Significantly, the book now includes essays from academics on crime in countries other than the United States. Thorough, accessibly written, and averaging 1000 words, the essays are not written for lawyers but are geared to law enforcement professionals and academic readers. Each includes a bibliography and list of cross references; in addition, many entries have citations to important court cases and statutes. The four volumes conclude with a glossary of legal terms and an index of court cases. The one drawback is the absence of graphics or Internet references. Broader and now more up-to-date than Jay R. Nash's six-volume Encyclopedia of World Crime (LJ 8/90), this set is recommended for all academic and law libraries. Harry Charles, Attorney at Law, St. Louis
