Statistics reveal that there are five times as many Americans behind bars today as in 1970. Despite some recent declines in urban crime rates, we remain the most violent industrial society on earth. In a hard-hitting and accessible work, nationally acclaimed criminologist Elliott Currie lays out why the solutions to America's most stubborn social crisis have not worked--and what will.
