This text will provide a comprehensive overview of the criminal justice and criminology curriculum through contributed essays directed at senior level capstone courses, and upper level seminars designed to review and expand upon key areas of study. The text will explore and examine theory, cases, laws and policies as they have been shaped by a larger social, cultural, and historical context. Topics span the gamut of the CJ and Criminology curriculum, including crime theory, law enforcement, jurisprudence, corrections and organizations. Each topic category will include a presentation of historical and contemporary material to illustrate the breadth of research, policy and practice implications of each. This book may also serve as a supplemental text in topical courses such as policing, courts or corrections.
