Overview

Criminal Justice, Fifth Edition, examines the themes of crime and justice to reveal their significant history, current facts, and modern trends, tracing them from the past to the present and into the future. This successful introductory text continues to focus on critical thinking and the media's influence on criminal justice and the public's perception of criminal justice. Albanese gives new attention to up-to-the-minute laws and policies related to crime, law, search and seizure, and operations of the criminal justice system, as well as coverage of issues of technology, including crimes facilitated by the Internet, identity theft, and international issues.
