Power, politics, and crime by William J Chambliss( Book )

"Power, Politics, and Crime argues that the current panic over crime has been manufactured by the media, law enforcement bureaucracies, and the private prison industry. It shows how the definition of criminal behavior systematically singles out the inner-city African American." "Through ethnographic observations, analysis of census data, and historical research, William J. Chambliss describes what is happening, why it has come about, and what can be done about it. He explores the genesis of crime as a political issue, and the effect that crime policies have had on different segments of the population. The book is more than a statement about the politics of crime and punishment - it's a powerful indictment of contemporary law enforcement practices in the United States."--Jacket

Current media and political discourse on crime has long ignored crimes committed by States themselves, despite their greater financial and human toll. For two decades, scholars have examined how and why States violate their own laws and international law and explored what can be done to reduce or prevent these injustices. Through essays by leading scholars, State Crime offers a set of cases exemplifying state criminality along with various methods for controlling governmental transgressions. It is an indispensable resource for those who examine the behavior of States and those who study crime
