Crime and Culture

This topic is often intriguing to people because it is dramatic.  But if we dig a little deeper we find other questions about crime and punishment that are equally fascinating.  What social determinants are involved in the commission of crimes? How did our current punitive institutions evolve? Does jail work? When do people re-offend and why?How do class, race, gender, human rights and other issues come together in questions of justice?All of these questions and more will be asked in Crime and Culture.
