9780226539010: The Honest Politician's Guide to Crime Control

Norval Morris and Gordon Hawkins's first premise is that our criminal justice system is a moral busybody, unwisely extended beyond its proper role of protecting persons and property. But they go further and systematically cover the amount, costs, causes, and victims of crime: the reduction of violence; the police; corrections; juvenile delinquency; the function of psychiatry in crime control; organized crime; and the uses of criminological research. On each topic precise recommendations are made and carefully defended.

From the Back Cover:

'We have a cure for crime.' Morris and Hawkins boldly state. 'We offer not a lightning panacea but rather a legislative and administrative regimen which would substantially reduce crime and the fear of crime.'
