Comparative Criminal Justice Systems: A Topical Approach (4th Edition)

The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice prepares students for meaningful careers in criminology, justice policy, the law, criminal justice, and related fields, including professional research careers. We do this by applying multidisciplinary social science tools that predict and explain crime, as well as deepening the understanding of policies that improve our systems of justice. We encourage each student to plan a program of study consistent with their interests and future aims. Our approach is experiential and our methods for teaching are rooted in knowledge creation as a top-tier research program. Our goal is to create ethical problem solvers who are prepared to tackle important crime and justice issues facing society. Our educational goals for students include a commitment to identify and address the role of systemic racism and intersecting dimensions of oppression in the development and application of justice system policies and practices, crime and justice theory, and research.

The text does a good job of covering the main issues of the American criminal justice system. There are chapters for the main topics, including crime, measuring crime, policing, courts, and corrections. There is also an interesting section on victimization, which many texts do not cover. Missing potential chapters like drugs and crime, mental health and crime, terrorism, bias-motivated crimes, cybercrimes, and comparative criminal justice. There is a discussion of Public Policy, which is great and something that I have not seen in any introductory text so far. 350c69d7ab
