SOCIO – PHYSICS : Applying the Natural Sciences to Criminal Justice and Penology, Expanded Edition

Author: 

Blakely, Curtis and Michelle, Truman State University

Using the natural sciences to examine social dynamics is not new. However, this is the first sustained attempt to apply this approach to the fields of criminal justice and penology. The authors intend their new theoretical/conceptual framework to promote innovative, creative and critical thought. In this revised/expanded edition, particular attention is paid to the manner in which each chapter builds then transitions to the next. Updated data/statistics are used throughout. Two additional chapters have been included. These chapters help solidify physical concepts and contribute substantially to the position that social and natural systems are comparable.

Chapter One - The Prison: An Institution in Crisis;
Chapter Two - A Living Organism;
Chapter Three - Evolutionary Science;
Chapter Four - Sub-atomic Particles and Prisoners;
Chapter Five - Thermodynamics and Newtonian Motion;
Chapter Six - Chaos Theory;
Chapter Seven - Applying Humanized Physics to Penology;
Chapter Eight - Prison Specialization and Offender Amenability; Chapter Nine - Literary Equations
Chapter Ten - Ich Bin Feuer und Flamme Dafur.
