The Habits of Legality

Criminal Justice and the Rule of the Law

Francis A. Allen

Studies in Crime and Public Policy

This book provides a broad summary of American criminal justice in a time of great concern about solutions to the current crime epidemic. Allen suggests that the way to a more effective penal policy can be found by a closer adherence to the law rather than the current trend to bypass certain laws in the name of the "war on crime".
