Bohm and Walkers thought-provoking edited volume addresses many of the American publics misconceptions about crime and criminal justice. Many of these understanding are inaccurate and based on myths. Each of the readers 27 articles demystifies or debunks one of these current myths, setting the record straight.DEMYSTIFYING CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE is organized to follow a logical progression through the criminal justice process.

In the third section, The Truth or Facts, the authors debunk the myth or myths by providing evidence, followed by Interests Served by the Myth, which illuminates how the interests of specific individuals or groups are promoted by the creation and perpetuation of the myth or myths. Finally, Policy Implications of Belief in the Myth, highlights some of the practical and often undesirable consequences of belief in the myth or myths.Written in clear, accessible language, DEMYSTIFYING CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE engages readers with straightforward analysis and cutting-edge information and research. Designed to stimulate critical thinking and class discussions, this mindset-challenging anthology will give students a depth of understanding about crime and criminal justice that few other books offer.

From W.E.B. Dubois through Lee Brown, this anthology provides a collection of the key articles in criminology and criminal justice written by black scholars. Available in a single volume for the first time, the articles collected in this book reflect the voices of African-American scholars and display the diversity of perspectives sought after in today's academic community. Crime in the African-American community is examined from social, economic and political perspectives, and the historical context of each article is provided by the editors. Spanning the 20th century, these works present a historical chronology of African-American views on crime and its control with theoretical perspectives that have often been tangential to mainstream scholarship.
