Criminal Justice and Criminology: Terms, Concepts, and Cases
University Press of America, 2007 - Reference - 301 pages
This dictionary contains criminal justice terms, criminological concepts, and over 100 cases decided by courts in the federal system, including the United States Supreme Court. These cases address aspects of criminal procedures, as well as individual rights in the U.S. Constitution related to the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendments. Using professional terms in an easy-to-read format, this book will provide the reader with a clear understanding of past and present concepts, terms, and case laws that are related to criminal justice and criminology. It serves as a perfect text for criminal justice and criminology programs at the undergraduate and graduate level. It can also be used as a supplemental adoption for these programs since most texts are written in an esoteric manner.
