Threat Perceptions: The Policing of Dangers from Eugenics to the War on Terrorism examines the legal, scientific, and social construction of risk of crime in the United States. Ghatak focuses on the crime control policies that stretched from the beginning of the era of Eugenics and the rise of criminal psychiatry in the late 19th century to the contemporary era of "actuarial justice" and the Patriot Act.
