Walker's SENSE AND NONSENSE was the first book to challenge common misconceptions about crime and remains the most effective at doing so. Described as a "masterful critique" of American policies ? on everything from crime control to guns to drugs ? Walker cuts through myths and political rhetoric and confronts both conservative and liberal propositions relative to current research and proven effectiveness. The result is a research-based, lucid work that stimulates critical thinking and enlivens class discussions. Walker captures the complexity of the administration of justice while providing students with a clear sense of the general patterns.

Samuel Walker has taught at University of Nebraska at Omaha for three decades. He is the author of 11 books and numerous articles on policing, the history of criminal justice, public policy on crime and the issues of civil liberties. He also has written books on the control of judicial discretion in the criminal justice system, hate crimes, race and ethnicity in American criminal justice, and the relationship between rights and the community in American society.
