Overview

This revision of James Inciardi's best-selling text presents a solid overview of the structure, processes, and problems of the criminal justice system in the U.S. The story-telling style captures students' imaginations and offers them inside information that only Inciardi can bring. Because the book covers all major areas of criminal justice, instructors can focus on the system as a whole or on areas of particular interest. The book's unique perspective is rooted in Inciardi's research background and his access to national data currently unavailable to other authors.
