Criminal Justice Today: An Introductory Text for the 21st Century is your guide to examine criminal justice through the lens of freedom and security. You'll focus on the crime picture in the US and the three traditional elements of the criminal justice system: police, courts, and corrections. Informed by the text's comprehensive coverage, the author empowers you to evaluate the American justice system, as you seek to preserve individual rights and public order.
The 16th Edition has been updated throughout with current issues. The text has also been enhanced with additional "Freedom or Safety" boxes, which time and again question the viability of our freedoms in a world that has grown ever more dangerous.
