Race And Sentencing Equality In Kentucky, Robert L. Hurley Dec 1979

Race And Sentencing Equality In Kentucky, Robert L. Hurley

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Examining data gathered in Kentucky, this thesis addresses this issue through the application of recently developed methodological techniques.
