About the Book

From the Crime to the Courts: An Overview of Criminology and Criminal Justice provides a comprehensive overview of the field. The book uses current research and contemporary issues to familiarize students with the structure and nature of both the criminal justice system and criminology.

The anthology begins with a discussion of the study of crime and how crime can most clearly be defined. This is followed by an exploration into the nature of criminology. Subsequent sections of the text focus on policing and law enforcement, courts and the judicial process, and corrections. Specific topics include:

  • Community Policing
  • Due Process
  • Law Adjudication
  • The History of American Corrections
  • White Collar Crime
  • The Use of Force
Primary sources including the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and famous Supreme Court cases provide important background for understanding fundamental values and how these affect the administration of justice in the real world.

Written in an accessible style, From the Crime to the Courts is ideal for introductory criminal justice courses.
