Michele R. is obviously a fool who read only the title, not the book. While one might disagree with Schur's contention that we often criminalize activities inappropriately and that such activities are, indeed, "victimless," the book has gained the stature of a criminological classic and the underlying thesis remains a focal point of public policy debates to this day.

Format: Paperback
I read this as an undergraduate in the late 1960s. It's one of those books that I still remember, and I've been thinking of having my students today read it. It was written at a time when abortion, homosexuality, and drug use were all illegal, and makes a plea for legalization. I think people could benefit from looking at an analysis of these issues in a time of criminalization--such as some would have us return to.

Format: Paperback
As with another reviewer, I urge people to read the book...it is cogent, balanced and accurate, along with being thoughtful and sane.

Opposition to the current PC position on these topics is rigidly seen as an indication of ones's biases and anyone who dares show opposition...or worse, tries to explore and inquire into these topics, is to be excoriated, posthaste. I am amazed Schur even wrote about them.The book should be required in many college classes; but is not. Cognitive dissonance and the wall of left/Liberal "thinking " prevails. Amazon readers...give it a whirl; well worth a few $$ and some time.

this book is obsurd. homosexuality more specifically is not a crime. it is natural behavior that does not hurt anyone. it is senseless to discourage any two human beings that love one another. it seems worse to promote hate.
