Crime in Canada is one of the titles in Oxford University Press series Issues in Canada. Sociologist Diane Crocker offers the post secondary level student and the general reader an evaluation of the criminal justice system's responses to crime-what works and what does not-and proposes solutions for moving forward. The volume challenges the popular perception that crime in Canada is on the rise and argues that public opinion is becoming a bigger barrier to achieving justice than the actual extent of crime.
