Criminal Justice and Criminology: Concepts and Terms

Front Cover
University Press of America, 2002 - Law - 368 pages
0 Reviews
Criminal Justice and Criminology introduces criminal justice and criminology professionals and students to the many concepts that are found in both academic disciplines. This book will demystify the esoteric jargon that is considered intimidating to those who are not practitioners or have been involved in the study of the justice profession. It will allow students a 'one-stop' resource that will address concepts and terms associated within both disciplines. Criminal Justice and Criminology is divided into two parts. Part one contains concepts and terms that address current issues related to police, courts, and corrections. Part two provides concepts and terms for criminology theory in general, but to matters of justice in particular.
