Overview

Since 1979 the Crime and Justice series has presented important developments in the criminal justice system that enhance the work of sociologists, psychologists, criminal lawyers, justice scholars, and political scientists. Crime and Justice offers an interdisciplinary approach to core issues in criminology, with perspectives from biology, law, psychology, ethics, history, and sociology.

Volume 32 covers criminal justice issues, with a careful balance of research, theory, and practice. Topics in this volume include: environmental crime, the effects of wrongful imprisonment, the assessment of macro-level predictors and theories of crime, ethnic differences in intergenerational crime patterns, sentencing guidelines in Minnesota from 1978 to 2003, and the results of five decades of neutralization research.
