This book focuses on the essentials that public managers should know about administrative law—why we have administrative law, the constitutional constraints on public administration, and administrative law’s frameworks for rulemaking, adjudication, enforcement, transparency, and judicial and legislative review. Rosenbloom views administrative law from the perspectives of administrative practice, rather than lawyering with an emphasis on how various administrative law provisions promote their underlying goal of improving the fit between public administration and U.S. democratic-constitutionalism. Organized around federal administrative law, the book explains the essentials of administrative law clearly and accurately, in non-technical terms, and with sufficient depth to provide readers with a sophisticated, lasting understanding of the subject matter.

Introduction to Criminology

A Text/Reader

Publisher: SAGE

ISBN: 1412992362

Category: Social Science

Page: 621

View: 5196

A unique text/reader that takes a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to the study of criminology Providing an affordable alternative to the standard textbook, this new edition of the authors’ popular text/reader provides instructors and students the best of both worlds – authored text with carefully selected accompanying readings. Now thoroughly updated with new articles, new content, and new statistics, tables, and figures, this Second Edition provides an interdisciplinary perspective on crime and criminality that incorporates the latest theories, concepts, and research from sociology, psychology, genetics, evolutionary biology, and the neurosciences. The new edition is divided into 15 sections that mirror chapters in a typical criminology textbook. New to This Edition: A new Section 11 on Mass Murder and Terrorism makes coverage of these high-interest topics even more accessible. Section 10 now focuses only on murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and domestic violence, making it easier for students to absorb the material. New articles appear in the structural theories section, the sections devoted to violent crime, and throughout the text/reader as needed. The authors now more closely link sections on types of crime to sections on theory to give readers a more cohesive understanding of the connections between the two. Contemporary criminologists’ favored theories (drawn from a survey of 770 criminologists) now appear in a table to give readers insight into the professional opinion today on criminological theories. Features: Each Section has a 15-page introduction (a "mini-chapter”) that contains vignettes, photos, tables and graphs, end-of-chapter questions, and Web exercises, followed by three to four supporting readings. Theory Section introductions contain a unique table that compares and contrasts the theories presented, while theory concluding sub-sections focus on policy and crime prevention. A "How to Read a Research Article" guide (which appears prior to the first reading) illustrates key aspects of a research article. The book’s readings are drawn from carefully selected, edited journal articles appropriate for an undergraduate audience.

This anthology will allow students the opportunity to analyze gangs and other adolescent subcultures as social phenomena. The book outlines the historical, etiological, behavioral, social, demographic, and environmental characteristics of these prevalent subcultures. Dr. LaTanya Skiffer's experience with gangs is both personal and professional. Both of her brothers were gang members as adolescents. This decision eventually led one of them to spend approximately 15 years of his life behind bars, with the other going in and out of the criminal justice system. This experience led her to focus her education and professional development on criminology and sociology, as well as on the subcultures of gangs and adolescents. Professor Skiffer is currently an assistant professor of criminology at California State University, Dominguez Hills. Dr. Skiffer's research interests include the gang and adolescent subcultures and black female offenders, in addition to race, class, and gender inequality. She has also served on Mayor Villaraigosa's Gang Reduction and Youth Development grant proposal review team and serves as a consultant for the Long Beach Boys & Girls Clubs.
