Serious Crime and the Public Consumption of Alcohol

Serious Crime and the Public Consumption of Alcohol

by Ronald R. Thrasher

Editorial Reviews

Thrasher (sociology and criminal justice, Oklahoma State University) analyses the relationship between the commission of serious crimes and the enforcement of laws limiting the public consumption of alcohol. Comparing data from Stillwater, Ponca City, and Chico, he weighs the relative significance of the timeliness, certainty, and severity of enforcement, and considers the impact of these characteristics on the deterrence of serious crime. The role of nuisance ordinances in community policing is also discussed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
