Summary

Coupling historical analysis with recent trends, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT: A HISTORY OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, 2e delivers a comprehensive examination of the history of the criminal justice system--from its roots in the ancient world and Great Britain through the 21st Century impact of terrorism and white collar crime on criminal justice institutions, including the courts, police, and prisons. Written by a historian and criminologist, the book illustrates how history has shaped the present criminal justice system and how it affects public policy being established today. It offers intriguing insight into the people and events that impacted the evolution of the American system, as well as explores the issues challenging today’s system, such as Ponzi schemes, medical marijuana, faith-based initiatives, and much more.
