Synopsis: Drug Court: Constructing the Moral Identity of Drug Offenders offers a richly detailed field research investigation of how drug court professionals work to help drug offenders become drug free and law abiding. The book explores the less public and revealing world of drug court professionals as they judge and manage drug offenders. Drug courts are the latest approach in America and in other countries for handling problem drug users. More than 1,200 drug courts exist throughout the United States and its territories. These courts developed out of the shifting emphasis on punishment and treatment of problem drug users. Based on more than five years of field research in three drug courts in a southeastern state in the U.S., in two of which the senior author was the drug court administrator, Drug Court explores how a team of drug court professionals transform drug offenders into drug court clients. Judges, administrators, drug counselors, lawyers, and others compose the drug court team. These drug court professionals face the challenge of deciding whether drug offenders are primarily criminals who have little, if any, desire to kick their habit or whether they are drug abusers who will work to abstain from using drugs. Some of the questions answered in this book are, Are the drug offenders appropriate clients for drug courts? Are the drug court clients participating adequately within the drug court program? Have the drug court clients performed successfully in the program to graduate? Through their evaluation, interpretation, monitoring, sanctioning, and more, drug court professionals judge the moral worth of drug offenders as they treat and manage the offenders through drug court. Drug Court will be of interest to a diverse audience including the areas of criminal justice, law/legal studies, drug treatment/counseling, and sociology.
