Incapacitation : penal confinement and the restraint of crime by Franklin E Zimring( )

25 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 2,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The one, sure way that imprisonment prevents crime is by restraining offenders from committing crimes while they are locked up. Called "incapacitation" by experts in criminology, this effect has become the dominant justification for imprisonment in the United States, where well over a million persons are currently in jails and prisons, and public figures who want to appear tough on crime periodically urge that we throw away the key. How useful is the modern prison in restraining crime, and at what cost? How much do we really know about incapacitation and its effectiveness? This book is the first comprehensive assessment of incapacitation. Franklin E. Zimring and Gordon Hawkins show the increasing reliance on restraint to justify imprisonment, analyze the existing theories on incapacitation's effects, assess the current empirical research, report a new study, and explore the links between what is known about incapacitation and what it tells us about our criminal justice policy. An insightful evaluation of a pressing policy issue, Incapacitation is a vital contribution to the current debates on our criminal justice system

Punishment and democracy : three strikes and you're out in California by Franklin E Zimring( )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Punishment and Democracy is an analysis of the politics and impact of "get tough" criminal sentencing legislation. Franklin Zimring, Gordon Hawkins, and Sam Kamin examine the origins of the law in California, compare it to other crackdown laws, and analyze large samples of offenders arrested in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco in the year before and the two years after the law went into effect. They show that the Three Strikes law was a significant development in criminal justice policy-making, not only at the state level, but also at the national level. The study presents compelling evidence, however, that the new regime has been enormously over-rated as a crime prevention measure. The book also examines the new politics of criminal punishment in the United States and the proper role of citizen preferences in the governance of criminal punishment. In its scrutiny of California's Three Strikes law, Punishment and Democracy extracts crucial lessons about democracy and criminal justice in America."--BOOK JACKET

The search for rational drug control by Franklin E Zimring( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive examination of the drug control policy process in the United States. How are policy choices identified, debated, and selected? How are the consequences of governmental policy measured and evaluated? How, if at all, do we learn from our mistakes? The first part of the book deals with four different ways of understanding drug policy in the United States. Chapter 1 examines drug control as ideology; Chapter 2 discusses the issues of definition and measurement; Chapter 3 provides a historical analysis of drug control; and Chapter 4 concerns drug control as an occasion for debating the proper role of the criminal law. Part Two provides a foundation for an improved policy process by discussing priority problems for drug control. Chapter 5 shows how the protection of children and youth should shape policy toward illicit drugs, with attention to the fact that youth protection objectives may properly limit the effectiveness of some drug controls. Chapter 6 explores the central but complex relationship between illicit drugs and predatory crime. Chapter 7 addresses the proper role of the federal government in drug control policy. A final chapter criticizes the current national drug control strategy and makes five suggestions for improving the drug control policy process
