Longtime market-leader THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM: POLITICS AND POLICIES, 10/e combines the enduring classics in the development of criminal justice policy with the latest developments from the field--and most recent debates from Congress. Equipping learners with primary sources and the most current, cutting-edge research available, this thorough reader presents research-framed debates discussed in our administration of justice. It promotes a more thorough understanding of the structure and function of the criminal justice system while highlighting critical cross cutting themes, such as discretion, the sources of power inside institutions, and how the public may impact the way laws are written. Covering a broad range of topics, the Tenth Edition offers expanded coverage of DNA/wrongful convictions, prison overcrowding, white-collar crime, cyber crime, ethics, technology, evidence-based practice, and much more.
