"Crime at College", 1994-95

 File
Identifier: Folder 148
The University filed a lawsuit against New Strategist Publications of Ithaca, New York, the publisher of _Crime at College: The Student Guide to Personal Safety_ by Curtis Ostrander and Joseph Schwartz. The University charged that the book portrayed the campus as crime-ridden by confusing the campus crime rate with that of the city as a whole. The University later dropped the suit. This material consists of articles, press releases, and correspondence about the case. Included here is Wendel's critique of the book (7-18-94) and his defense of statistics cited in his critique (10-11-94).
