A comprehensive overview of the effects of new technology on criminality, crime prevention, and the criminal justice system is presented in this new textbook/reader. Fourteen chapters explore five critical issues: Â How will new technological innovations affect both crime prevention and crime control policies toward offenders and victims?Â Will criminal justice personnel be replaced by new hardware or software? Â Will technology lead to increased privatization of traditional justice functions? Â Is there research evidence that technological innovations have improved the criminal justice system s response to crime?Â What is the link between technology and various forms of criminal behavior?Applications of hard and soft technology are assessed in chapters by scholarly specialists on: the link between technology and criminality (by Kip Schlegel and Charles Cohen); crime prevention (by Brandon Welsh and David Farrington, and by Arthur Lurigio and Andrew Harris); policing (by Don Hummer and by Christopher J. Harris); courts (by Eric Bellone and by Ronald Corbett); institutional corrections (by Jacob Stowell, and by James Byrne and April Pattavina); community corrections (by Patricia Harris and James Byrne, and by April Pattavina and Faye Taxman); and the emerging role of the private sector (by Donald Rebovich and Anthony Martino). Prof. Gary Marx s concluding commentary analyzes the social control and privacy implications of the many new technology applications. A comprehensive list of web sites is provided for further research on new technologies.
