Acknowledgements

Many individuals deserve thanks and recognition for the completion of this book, and there are many more than just those listed below. I am fortunate to have worked with many critical scholars and these individuals have helped developed my thinking about crime and justice.

Professor Robert Nash Parker at the University of California Riverside encouraged the development of this manuscript, for which I am very grateful, and provided funding for the project through the Presley Institute of Crime and Justice Studies. I also thank him for his helpful guidance and feedback on earlier drafts of this manuscript. Working with Rob was a real pleasure and I am thankful for the opportunity. I also thank Professor Austin Turk of the University of California Riverside for his careful reading of the manuscript as it was being developed, and for helping me shape the research framework. Austin's intellectual approach is the reason I chose a career in criminology.

The research staff at the Social and Behavioral Research Institute at California State University San Marcos was of great assistance in drafting the questionnaire, and they did an excellent job in collecting the data. A special thanks to Director Richard Serpe, Allen Risley, and Lori Large.

The final manuscript could not have been completed without the help of three individuals. I am very grateful to Susan Cratty. She was more of a help than I had a right to expect. She read proofread multiple drafts, procured reference material and worked long hours into the night. I am also grateful to Tammy Booth for helping me put the manuscript together. I could not have done this without her. Thanks also to Patty Cratty, for carefully proofreading.

Finally, I wish to thank my husband, Professor Richard Serpe, for his endless encouragement, patience and support. He read multiple drafts, helped me with technical aspects of this manuscript, and did whatever he could to help me see this project through. Thank you Richard.

This book is dedicated to my parents, Dorothy and Howard.
