About The Author

James F Hilgenberg

Willard M. Oliver

The third edition of “A History of Crime and Criminal Justice in America” features a newly updated chapter on the Reagan era, covering the 1980s and 1990s. Additionally, a completely new chapter has been added to discuss the Era of Security from September 11, 2001, until the present day. These updates bring the book up-to-date with contemporary times.

Each chapter starts with an overview of the social, political, and economic factors that influenced society during a specific historical era in America. It then delves into a detailed review of both ordinary and extraordinary crimes committed during that time period. The chapter also explores how the criminal justice system, including the courts, police, corrections, and juvenile justice, responded to these crimes. This provides insights into the development of the American criminal justice system over time.

The authors of “A History of Crime and Criminal Justice in America 3rd Edition” have created a comprehensive resource that sheds light on our nation’s past and addresses our collective historical ignorance and forgetfulness. They have skillfully synthesized and presented this complex topic. While the ebook does not offer solutions to crime or a quick fix for reforming the criminal justice system, readers who embark on this fascinating journey through time with Willard Oliver and James Hilgenberg will gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of American criminal justice. Hopefully, this knowledge will help us avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.
