Summary

C rime and Justice in America offers a concise, affordable, and reader friendly full-color introduction to the criminal justice system. It explores the system in four sections: the criminal justice system as social control, law enforcement as social control, the law as social control, and corrections as social control. Widely respected author Joycelyn Pollock integrates issues that women and minority populations face in the criminal justice system throughout the text, as opposed to other texts that treat these issues separately. Each chapter includes a What You Need to Know summary and key terms section, review questions, Breaking News items, Web links, and exercises that help students apply the material to different jurisdictions.
