Leo Receives Edwin H. Sutherland Award

July 23, 2010

Associate Professor Richard Leo earned the Law and Society Division Society for the Study of Social Problems (SSSP) Edwin H. Sutherland Award for his book Police Interrogation and American Justice (Harvard University Press, 2008).

Leo’s book is a study of the criminal justice system that demonstrates how crime units have developed interrogation methods based on persuasion, manipulation, and deception. Police Interrogation and American Justice has also won the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences Outstanding Book Award and the Herbert Jacob Book Prize from The Law and Society Association.

“Leo offers an expansive analysis of the nature and impact of police interrogation (in this) comprehensive and interdisciplinary piece that nicely places the idea of interrogation within the contexts of criminology, law, sociology, and psychology,” the Law and Society Division Society SSSP said. “The book offers an excellent analysis of policy directions in the protection of legal rights.”

This is the inaugural award of the Edwin H. Sutherland Outstanding Scholarship competition, which will occur every other year.
