CALL FOR AUTHORS: Key Issues in Crime and Punishment Series
We are inviting academic editorial contributors to a new reference series
on Crime and Punishment to be published in 2011 by SAGE Publications. This
comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and
academic libraries and includes 5 titles, each with 20 chapters of 5,000
words. The 5 titles are:
Crime and Criminal Behavior
Police and Law Enforcement
Courts, Law and Justice
Juvenile Crime and Justice
The chapters in each title are written to offer pro and con examinations of
controversial programs, practices, problems, or issues from varied
perspectives. A broad range of issues are arranged within each volume,
including such hotly debated topics as amnesty for illegal aliens, medical
marijuana, police brutality, racial sentencing disparities, and the death
penalty for minors.
We are now making chapter assignments with a deadline of February 1, 2010.
Each chapter of approximately 5,000 words is signed by the contributor. The
for the series is William Chambliss, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology at
George Washington University, who will review all the chapters for
editorial content and academic consistency.
If you are interested in contributing to the series, it can be a notable
publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits.
Moreover, you can help ensure that accurate information and important
points of view are credibly presented to students and library patrons.
Compensation for the written chapters is the contributorís choice of 1 free
copy of the book contributed to, or a SAGE book credit allowance of $200
per book contributed to.
The list of available chapters, style guidelines, and sample chapter are
prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry. Please then
select which unassigned chapter may best suit your interests and expertise.
If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference
with the Crime and Punishment series, please contact me by the e-mail

criminal justice-related issues.
I would also appreciate your recommendation of any colleagues that might be
