Introduction to Criminal Justice

 
9780075572749: Introduction to Criminal Justice

The fifth edition of this introductory Criminal Justice text. The contents have been pared down to five parts and sixteen chapters to best explain the intricacies of criminal justice policy and practice. The book has been thoroughly updated by Patrick Anderson to cover developments in policing, corrections, the war on drugs, and to include introductory cases on field practice, the criminal justice system in practice, the ideological framework of crime control, and discussions of criminological theory and crime punishment.

From the Publisher:

CHAPTER OPENING/CLOSING CASES SEEKING/SERVING JUSTICE illustrate "real-world" issues surrounding the concepts in the chapter. Students read about a real-world case (ex: Richard Allen Davis convicted for the kidnap and murder of Polly Klaas), and are asked what they would have decided if they were a juror, and why they would make this decision.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES provide a learning structure for the student and are reinforced by a SUMMARY BY OBJECTIVE at the end of the chapter
THINKING CRITICALLY boxes ask students to look at opposing sides of an issue
EXPLORING ETHICS boxes probe potential moral dilemmas in the field
ON THE JOB boxes take an everyday look at people at work in the criminal justice system
FACT boxes provide fun supporting facts (or summaries of key legal cases)
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS provide yet another alternative for starting provocative class discussions
INTERNET EXERCISES
Retains its grounding in the work day world of the criminal justice system, yet addresses the issues that will shape the system in the years to come: racism and sexism in policing; police and community relations; defense attorneys: Does money buy justice?; prosecuting domestic violence; our skyrocketing prison population.
Remains briefer (by approximately 175 pages) and less expensive than other comprehensive (as opposed to brief version) books for this market.
