Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Erik D. Fritsvold, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Sociology at USD, reports that Alex Stevens from the University of Kent, UK, gave a very favorable review of Dorm Room Dealers [A. Rafik Mohamed and Erik D. Fritsvold, Boulder, CO: Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2010, 197pp., ISBN: 978-1-58826-816-7 (pb)]. Quoting Stevens' closing comment: "The book provides an excellent and important account of how the ‘cream of American youth’ are still protected from the legal consequences of their criminal actions."
