Foundational and renowned study of how politicians and others use crime rates--and most of all the public perception of street crime, whether or not it is accurate--for their own purposes. Dr. Scheingold also provides a theoretical basis for his views. The follow-up to the landmark The Politics of Rights, this book is both supported in research and accessible and interesting to readers everywhere.
