An introduction to criminal justice through the lens of freedom and security
Built around the theme of tension between individual rights and public order, Revel™ Criminal Justice Today: An Introductory Text for the 21st Century guides criminal justice students in the struggle to find a satisfying balance between freedom and security. Its comprehensive coverage focuses on the crime picture in the US and the three traditional elements of the criminal justice system: police, courts, and corrections. Schmalleger challenges students to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the American justice system. The 16th Edition has been updated throughout with current issues and 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.
