Abstract

Book abstract: Crime is the breach of rules or laws for which some governing authority can ultimately prescribe a conviction. Individual human societies may each define crime and crimes differently. Crime has been constant in the history of mankind and is a pervasive phenomenon affecting all societies. This book presents current research in the study of crime including such topics as the role of police deception in interrogation and juror's perceptions of these techniques; the link between personal victimization and fear of crime; police effectiveness and crime rates; and juvenile offenders tried in adult criminal court.
