Thinking about Crime Sense and Sensibility in American Penal Culture
No one would purposely have created the criminal justice system that the U.S. now has. It's too harsh and too unfair for too many--especially minorities. This book, in clear and lucid language, and with entertaining examples, spells out how American crime policy has reached the lowpoint it has and where we can go from here. It explains how the worst of current policies can be undone and how the avoidable human suffering they produce can be diminished.
