Comments

"...a polemical discussion of crime and punishment in the state of Wisconsin, as Derleth castigates drunken drivers, sociologists, and psychiatrists who attribute antisocial behavior to some childish trauma and then excuse it, and the "gullible and sentimental yokels" on some juries who buy their arguments" (WILSON 337).
