Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text in which the author sets out to encompass a broader-than-usual range of topics than is to be found in the usual text, including drug use, capital punishment, gun control, and violence. In 14 chapters, the war on crime and peacemaking perspectives are utilized to highlight the disparity in how issues are conceived, attacked, and resolved, and how the criminal justice system can act as a double-edged sword in its attempt to protect and serve. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
