Editorial Reviews

Peter Grabosky

“Traditionally, scholars of criminology and political science have had little to say to each other. This immensely valuable book succeeds admirably in bridging these disciplinary silos. Focusing on the intersection of crime and politics, it is a wonderfully accessible work that will appeal to students, teachers, and other readers alike.”--Peter Grabosky, Australian National University
Gary T. Marx

“Jeffrey Ross's book on the politics of crime and the crimes of politics is a most welcome text for the undergraduate student. It treats this most challenging and important of topics in a systematic, balanced, and clearly presented fashion.”--Gary T. Marx, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
