A second article explores some of the complex trends in property crime, rape, and violence among intimates, and highlights some of the implications of the high rates of incarceration.

An article on community oriented lawyering describes an emerging approach to legal practice. “Piecing Together the Cross-National Crime Puzzle” discusses the difficulties of analyzing crime data across countries.
