James Q. Wilson redefined the public debate by offering a brilliant and provocative new argument?that criminal activity is largely rational and shaped by the rewards and penalties it offers?and forever changed the way Americans think about crime. Now with a new foreword by the prominent scholar and best-selling author Charles Murray, this revised edition of Thinking About Crime introduces a new generation of readers to the theories+-+K264729485223815ocn012081011book19850.29Wilson, James QCrime and human natureAssembling the latest evidence from the fields of sociology, criminology, economics, medicine, biology, and psychology and exploring the effects of such factors as gender, age, race, and family, two eminent social scientists frame a groundbreaking theory of criminal behavior+-+2117039315200323ocn027684783book19930.31Wilson, James QThe moral sensePresents the classic and controversial argument that morality is based in human nature.--From publisher description+-+3788839315167722ocn019920848book19890.39Wilson, James QBureaucracy : what government agencies do and why they do it+-+1032550195159787ocn012939798book19800.39Wilson, James QAmerican government : institutions and policiesTextbooksThis classic text ... explores the foundations of our national political system and shows how the fundamental features of our government influence the lives of all Americans.

Kass, the noted teacher, scientist, and humanist, and James Q. Wilson, the preeminent political scientist to whom four U.S. presidents have turned for advice on crime, drug abuse, education, and other crises in American life, explore the ethics of human cloning, reproductive technology, and the teleology of human sexuality. Although in their lively dialogue both authors share a fundamental distrust of the notion of human cloning, they base their reticence on different views of the role of sexual reproduction and the role of the family. Professor Kass contends that in vitro fertilization and other assisted reproduction technologies that place the origin of human life in human hands have eroded the respect for the mystery of sexuality and human renewal. Professor Wilson, on the other hand, asserts that whether a human life is created naturally or artificially is immaterial as long as the child is raised by loving parents in a two-parent family and is not harmed by the means of its conception. This accessible volume promises to inform the public policy debate over the permissible conduct of genetic research and the permissible uses of its discoveries+-+5505929935140128ocn001175593book19660.53Wilson, James QUrban renewal; the record and the controversy130226ocn000261581book19670.63Wilson, James QThe Metropolitan enigma; inquiries into the nature and dimensions of America's urban crisis+-+3507209215324122416ocn000500950book19600.56Wilson, James QNegro politics; the search for leadership122112ocn005940853book19740.53Wilson, James QThe Politics of regulation12075ocn046683836book20020.27Wilson, James QThe marriage problem : how our culture has weakened familiesMarriage, the emotional core and social foundation of our culture, is under attack. Profound changes in our values have eroded family life to a degree that degrades the very integrity of our society. This devastation takes many forms, says the renowned scholar, James Q. Wilson: the proliferation of cohabitation instead of formal marriage, the steep increase in single and teenage parents, and the rising divorce rate. Behind these diverse forces, Wilson draws on meticulous research to identify two underlying causes of this destruction: the rise of individualism and the consequences of slavery. Unafraid to contradict conventional wisdom, Wilson provides ample evidence that marriage benefits all parties, husbands, wives and, especially, children. An important and persuasive book, The Marriage Problem is a clarion call to rebuild the family, and society, by having a solid marital structure at its core+-+3834571155118518ocn000776949book19730.59Wilson, James QPolitical organizations+-+K03895641510585ocn035694553book19970.37Wilson, James QMoral judgment : does the abuse excuse threaten our legal system?In Moral Judgment, Professor Wilson demonstrates how our judicial system has compromised its obligation to discriminate between right and wrong. He explains why lawyers and judges - by distinguishing between personal and judicial responsibility, by inviting the participation of "expert witnesses," and by allowing "mitigating circumstances" to play a major role in criminal testimony - have moved from judging behavior to explaining it.

Can gun control laws reduce violent crime? Does televised violence cause real violence? Do community alternatives to prison make matters better or worse? All the central issues in today's crime debate are covered in this book, including the effects of biomedical, family, neighborhood, and economic factors on criminality; how prosecutors and judges deal with offenders; the special problem of juvenile crime and gangs; the growth in prison populations and its effects - and much more. Many of the policies now being implemented do not reflect the current state of knowledge about what works and what doesn't in crime control. Crime explores reality-based alternatives that have the potential to restore the confidence in public safety that is essential to a strong civil society+-+026906300698916ocn000501184book19620.59Wilson, James QThe amateur Democrat; club politics in three citiesHistory9528ocn009489070book19830.59Crime and public policy7746ocn011157618book19850.28Wilson, RobertaWatching fishes : life and behavior on coral reefs75114ocn176648836book20070.29Understanding America : the anatomy of an exceptional nation"What is America? Is it a hegemonic superpower, composed of ruthlessly selfish capitalists? Or is it a land of hope and glory, a shelter for the huddled masses, and a beacon of freedom and enlightenment? The definition of this complex nation has been debated substantially, yet all seem to agree on one thing: it is unique. The idea of an exceptional America can be traced all the way back to Alexis de Tocqueville's nineteenth-century observations of a newly formed democracy that seemed determined to distinguish itself from the rest.
