Justice Perverted: Critical primer on sex offender policy

At a time when many U.S. states are teetering on the verge of bankruptcy and essential public services are being slashed and burned, does it make sense to spend billions and billions of dollars on largely symbolic laws that do little or nothing to prevent or deter sex offending?

Not according to Charles Patrick Ewing, a forensic psychologist and law professor at the University at Buffalo Law School.

I plan to say more about this book's implications for forensic psychologists in an upcoming post. For now, suffice it to say that I highly recommend this timely book to my readers; my review at Amazon is HERE.

This is even more proof that U.S. law and public policy are influences on science.

Justice Perverted appears to be a fascinating and informative book. I look forward to reading it.
