Overview

Leading prosecution researchers throughout the United States are brought together in this book to illuminate the new environment of prosecution in America, the prosecution of troubling and emerging crime problems, prosecutorial problemsolving and community prosecution, and the future of prosecution in the twenty-first century. The contributors explore how American prosecutors are moving away from a traditional, reactive approach to the crime problem, and, instead, how they are developing creative problem-solving strategies for dealing with crime and disorder.
