Simon, a law professor, wrote “Governing Through Crime: How the War on Crime Transformed American Democracy and Created a Culture of Fear” (Oxford University Press, 2007). In a review, president Jeremy Travis of John Jay College of Criminal Justice said Simon “powerfully and persuasively argues that America’s obsession with crime has touched, indeed distorted, the fundamental building blocks of our democratic society.”
