Mario Papparozzi and Roger Guy (Sociology & Criminal Justice) recently published an article in the Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice.  Titled “Everything That is Old Is New Again –Old Again – New Again…” the article reflects upon the changing nature of the criminal justice system. Papparozzi states, "In reflecting on what has and what has not changed in the profession over the past 40 years, I am struck by the cyclical changes that have occurred largely due to shifting political ideologies and the economy as opposed to research evidence and sound theory. It seems that the phrase 'everything that is old is new again' best describes my observations.
