Professor Mark A.R Kleiman 

Mark A.R Kleiman is Professor of Public Policy in the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Luskin School of Public Affairs. His current focus is on the dynamics of deterrent threats, and on the prospect of reducing crime and incarceration by substituting swiftness and predictability for severity in the criminal justice system generally and in community-corrections institutions specifically.  Dr Kleiman edits the Journal of Drug Policy Analysis and is the author of several books on cannabis and drugs policy including When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment, listed by The Economist as one of the "Books of the Year" for 2009.   In addition to his academic work, Dr Kleiman provides advice to local, state, and national governments on crime control and drug policy.
