Summary

This classic best-seller, commonly referred to as "The Eagle," encourages students to become better citizens and to determine what justice means in our society as well as what role individuals play in the criminal justice system. This text examines criminal justice as an interdisciplinary endeavor, sharing elements from criminology, sociology, law, history, psychology, and political science. It challenges students to balance the mechanics and system of criminal justice with the human side of the story. Cole and Smith present an exciting and relevant introduction to the field of criminal justice. The text combines solid research and intellectual rigor in an approachable manner with detailed attention to current and compelling events to help students appreciate the many aspects of the discipline, and how they can participate in the system as citizens of the United States. Available for the first time with Criminal JusticeNow, a Web-based, intelligent study system.
