Crime, Law, and Justice Description

Crime, Law, and Justice provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the field of criminal justice and the criminal justice system. Based on both criminological research and theoretical analysis, the anthology addresses the types and extent of crimes, the role of criminal and constitutional law, law enforcement, corrections, probation, and parole.

Students will read articles on why people commit crimes, the criminal man, and crime, criminals, and victims in a global context. They will learn about ethics in criminology and crime control policy. The material also addresses community policing, due process, victimology, and the scale of imprisonment in the United States.

Throughout its six sections, Crime, Law, and Justice asks critical questions about the criminal justice system. Why does it function as it does, and are there ways in which it could be improved? Crime, Law, and Justice is suitable for introductory courses in criminology and criminal justice. It is also a valuable tool for classes in sociology, police administration, and criminal or constitutional law.
