Real and Perceived Changes of Crime and Punishment
Wolfgang, Marvin E.
Daedalus, 143-57, Win 78
Describes America's changing response to the problem of crime since the 1960s. At that time, theories of criminal deviance supported rehabilitation of offenders and programs to eliminate root causes of crime. In the 1970s, several states have revised their criminal codes to stress even-handed punishment as the most effective deterrent to crime. (Author/AV)
