Best-selling AMERICA'S COURTS AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM focuses on the dynamics of the court by introducing the concept of the courthouse workgroup and the interrelated relationship of the three main actors-judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney-thus illustrating the law in action, not just the theories and facts. Neubauer also uses a myriad of pedagogical devices that bring the court process to life for students, including A Day in Court, Controversy, and Case Close-Up boxes. This text has become the market-leader in large part because of its comprehensive coverage, its focus on the dynamics of the process, and its pedagogical features. Neubauer emphasized key aspects of the law, particularly law on the books, law in action, and law in controversy, to provide students with a clear focus. The Eighth Edition is filled with timely new content and now is accompanied by an exciting new Student Companion CD-ROM that features Court TVA(R) videos-FREE with every new copy of the text!

User Review  - Melissa - Goodreads

This book is an excellent edition to every and any law library. It goes into great detail of law by the book and law in action. I learned more reading this textbook than i have in the last two years of studying law which is sad in a way. Read full review
