The Money and Politics of Criminal Justice Policy

The Money and Politics of Criminal Justice Policy

Thus, the purpose of this book is to address these issues, by concentrating on the different sectors of the criminal justice system and what effect money and politics have on these sectors.

The criminal justice system is framed predominantly by notions of justice, as well as the creation of policies that will most effectively prevent and/or punish crime. The pedagogy of criminal justice often overlooks the expenditures that are necessary to enact these policies or how people actually benefit from the creation of these policies. While there is certainly a relationship between fiscal concerns and criminal justice policy, this relationship is oftentimes mediated by a political process that is dictated by stereotypical views of crime, as well as outright mythology concerning the nature of criminality. Thus, the purpose of this book is to address these issues, by concentrating on the different sectors of the criminal justice system and what effect money and politics have on these sectors. The topics covered in the textbook include determining the costs of crime, the fear of crime and crime myths, how theory affects paradigms of criminal justice regarding money and politics, federalism and the criminal justice system, interests groups that affect criminal justice policy, policing, corrections, and courts. In the concluding chapter, we pose the question of what should the relationship be between criminal justice policy, politics, and money.

The Politics and Practice of Occupational Health and Safety Law Enforcement

This book takes a critical approach to examining British and Italian occupational health and safety enforcement policies and questions the legal and political principles that underpin them. The book undertakes a comparative critical analysis of these two jurisdictions’ health and safety regulatory enforcement practices by focusing on the causes and consequences of the under-criminalisation of these crimes. It explores the fundamentals of these two jurisdictions' criminal justice systems and political practices, policies and traditions and exposes how these translate into pragmatic social inequality and injustice for victims of occupational health and safety crimes and, more generally, citizens. Findings are drawn from qualitative interviews conducted with front line occupational health and safety enforcement officers. This book offers an account of the challenges encountered when attempting to scrutinise public institutions responsible for policing crimes of the powerful. The comparison of the political and criminal justice system practices, polices and traditions of the British and Italian legal systems offer a valuable critical contribution to the anglophone literature on the subject and, more generally, on regulatory enforcement policies and practices.

Race and Criminal Justice History: Rhetoric, Politics, and Policy helps students understand the complicated connection between the criminal justice system and the politics of race in America. Through socio-legal, socio-psychological and socio-historical analysis of racism and the history of American political rhetoric on crime, the text provides a foundation for understanding how African Americans are perceived in modern society and how long-standing negative perceptions have influenced their interactions with the criminal justice system. The text begins with a discussion on how criminal justice policy and perceptions of criminality are related to African American disproportionate incarceration. Through a socio-psychological lens, it explains how African Americans are stereotyped as criminals, as well as how the biological, sociological, and psychological science of racial bias, prejudice, and racism can influence police interactions. Later chapters provide a detailed and in-depth review of how antebellum and postbellum politics defending states' rights, the adoption of Jim Crow by the Supreme Court, presidential level political rhetoric regarding Black inferiority, criminality and segregation, as well as the use of the criminal justice system as means of social control of former slaves, all form the context for understanding the development of the modern criminal justice policies implemented during the presidencies of Johnson through Trump. Thorough in historical and psychological analysis, and timely in light of current social and political events, Race and Criminal Justice History is an ideal text for criminal justice, sociology, psychology, social work, political science, public administration, public policy, and race and ethnic studies courses. Arthur H. Garrison, LP.D., is an associate professor of criminal justice at Kutztown University, specializing in criminal justice history, race and policing, constitutional law, legal history, and national security. He received his doctorate in law and policy from Northeastern University and his master's in criminal justice from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. His scholarship includes numerous articles on race and criminal justice, as well as publications on police civil liability, criminal justice policy making, national security and terrorism, constitutional law, and the history of presidential power in times of national crisis.
