First page number:
"Throughout history, the powerful have created laws, developed agencies to enforce those laws, and established institutions to punish lawbreakers. Maintaining the social order to their advantage resulted in the systematic repression of disadvantaged groups--the 'dangerous classes.' The third edition retains a historical approach to exploring patterns of social control and, through current examples, demonstrates how those strategies continue today."--Page 4 of cover.
