Using George Orwell's 1984 as a backdrop, this volume examines existing trends and future directions in the use of electronic surveillance, lie detectors, and aversive "treatment" of criminal offenders. Also assesses the outlook for innovative methods of crime control, such as the prediction of criminal behavior and the techniques used in utopian communities.
