Mr. Richard Harris’ little book, The Fear of Crime, portrays in colorful, compact style the workings of the United States Senate, both in committee and on the floor, in the hammering out of a major piece of legislation. The book concerns itself with many of the legislative and political machinations involved in the drafting and passage of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968.
