Crime Control in America: What Works? 2/e

John L. Worrall, University of Texas at Dallas

 

Crime Control in America introduces readers to the many methods of crime control and reviews the research concerning their effectiveness.

The text covers policing, prosecution and courts, and legislative methods of crime control. It also moves beyond the justice system and examines the effectiveness of crime control at the individual, family, school, and community levels.  Finally, it covers environmental criminology, juvenile crime control, and explanations of large-scale crime trends, particularly the reductions witnessed during the 1990s.

 

What the reviewers are saying ...

Worrall’s “coverage is the most extensive and fresh that I have seen.”

Brian Renauer, Portland State University

 

 Worrall  “was successful in achieving his goal of creating a text with an expansive selection of policies.  He certainly covers the critical issues facing crime control, and does so with a fair and balanced approach.  I appreciate his straightforwardness in presenting both sides of the issue.”

Ronald Burns, Texas Christian University

 

“Worrall did an excellent job of describing and evaluating crime control in America.  He focused on current crime problems and offered approaches and solutions to law enforcement.  The descriptions on the hard and soft sciences contained a higher level of thinking and will challenge students to ‘think outside the box.’”

Barbara Cox, Gardner- Webb University

Review:

This text is thorough and exacting in its coverage, and it is a reliable review of the evidence. It is profound in its organizational and presentation logic. It is that best of things in a book: authoritative.  -- Todd Clear, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
