Conklin (Tufts U.) examines the rapid and sustained decline in the crime rate which occurred in the 1990s, focusing on the reasons why there was so little public discourse on the reasons for the shrinking crime problem and assessing the validity of the explanations offered by political leaders, law enforcement officials, and criminologists, primarily in the pages of the New York Times.
