This is a study of crime in America. It looks at crime in terms of numbers and rates and attempts to prove that the American public has been misled, by the politician and the media, into believing there is a crime wave. The book gives an overview of crime, the criminal justice system. There is a discussion of economic considerations, how to approach crime policy rationally, and how to work with elected officials and assist in the initiation of effective crime policy.
