Critical Issues in Crime and Justice provides a comprehensive examination of the current critical issues and policy dilemmas within the American criminal justice system. Developed for introductory courses on the American criminal justice system and its related components, the book begins with an overview of criminal justice and a case exemplar on criminal justice processing. The authors examine the successes, failures, and trends of law enforcement, as well as juvenile justice, the courts, and correctional systems. Each chapter is authored by a recognized authority on the specific topic and timely case illustrations and trend data are presented throughout. Policy and model program examples from many of the 50 states and end-of-chapter summaries are included to further students' comprehension. Discussion questions are found at the conclusion of each chapter. This volume is an excellent primary or supplementary text for Introduction to Criminal Justice and related courses.
