Summary

Less expensive, shorter, and more approachable than most introductory titles on the market today, this bestselling book examines criminal justice from an interdisciplinary perspective, combining elements of criminology, sociology, law, history, psychology, and political science. Cole and Smith encourage readers to become better citizens, to explore what justice means in our society, and to decide what role individuals can play in shaping that meaning. The authors challenge readers to consider both the mechanics of the criminal justice system and the human stories of people involved in the system. CRIMINALJUSTICE IN AMERICA, Sixth Edition, also includes a user-friendly and useful technology package, including a companion Web site.
