This collection of original essays on contemporary issues in justice is interdisciplinary in perspective. The articles focus on the broad issues of social control, social change, and social conflict and its resolution. Written by prominent scholars, the 11 essays cover the contradictions of the legal profession, the reasons why people deviate in different ways, and the origin of order and the dynamics of justice, among other topics. Some of the articles are quite theoretical, some are written in an insipid style. The collection is designed to encourage and extend the current focus of research and teaching. Of interest to criminologists, sociologists, and others involved in the study of law and society. Graduate level. -P. Horne, Mercer County Community College
