Samuel Walker s SENSE AND NONSENSE ABOUT CRIME DRUGS AND COMMUNITIES was one of the first books to challenge common misconceptions about crime and the new Seventh Edition remains uniquely effective at doing so Described as a masterful critique of American policies on everything from crime control to guns to drugs this incisive text cuts through popular myths and political rhetoric while emphasizing current research and proven practice The result is a distinctly lucid research based work that clearly reveals what does not work in crime policy while identifying shared characteristics of successful approaches including carefully defined narrowly focused problem oriented programs in policing and prosecution This engaging text captures the full complexity of the administration of justice while providing students with a clear sense of its key principles and general patterns
