Americans View Crime and Justice
A National Public Opinion Survey

Edited by:


September 1996 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The results from the United States National Crime and Justice Survey conducted in 1995 are analyzed in this volume. The survey provided a comprehensive national assessment of attitudes, and the topics covered include: fear of crime; gun control; capital punishment; and juvenile crime. Using the data collected, distinguished criminologists report on the development and current status of public opinion on these issues. They also present an analysis of the implications of the data taken during the survey.
