James A. Inciardi, an internationally recognized scholar and author, brings his significant field and research experience to this revision of Criminal Justice, 7/e. This volume presents a solid overview of the structure, processes, and problems of the criminal justice system in the United States. Inciardi's research background, his privileged access to national data, and his narrative writing style guarantee a unique perspective to criminal justice. New to this edition is a "Critical Thinking" feature and additional types of "Perspective" boxes. The coverage of all major areas of criminal justice allows instructors to focus either on the system as a whole or on areas of particular interest. Criminal Justice, 7/e, is an ideal text for courses in sociology, criminal justice, and political science.
