9780024115218: Justice Without Trial: Law Enforcement in Democratic Society

New Fourth Edition of the acclaimed and foundational study of police culture and practice, political accountability, application of and obedience to the rule of law in stops and arrests, and the dilemma of law versus order in free societies -- by the renowned sociologist Jerome Skolnick using innovative and influential research techniques in law and criminology. A respected scholar of the early law and society movement, Skolnick interviewed police and criminals, rode extensively with police detectives and attended interrogations, and ultimately saw police conduct and mentality from the inside, before such methodology became popular. Every student of law and society knows this book: now it is available again with a new Foreword by Candace McCoy, and a new Preface by the author. Fifty years after his innovative research began, the continuity and change of policing and law is seen again, in all its richness and nuance. Part of the Classics of Law & Society Series of Quid Pro Books. Available in print and parallel digital formats for easy classroom adoption and diverse research options.

From the Publisher:

This classic field observation study covers wide range of topics. The author illuminates the contradiction between the formal written rules, interpretations, and perceived organizational needs by which police forces are supposed to operate, and the continuing drama of human personalities and aspirations that also contribute to the administration of criminal justice in America. This timely new edition contains a new Epilogue, "The Challenge of Crime in the 1990s," which brings the "Westville" police department and its problems up-to-date, in the context of issues faced by police and their departments across the nation.
