9780323353977: Criminal Law (John C. Klotter Justice Administration Legal Series)

Criminal Law, Eleventh Edition, a classic introduction to criminal law for criminal justice students, combines the best features of a casebook and a textbook. Its success over numerous editions, both at community colleges as well as in four-year college criminal justice programs, is proof this text works as an authoritative source on criminal law as well as a teaching text that communicates with students. The book covers substantive criminal law and explores its principles, sources, distinctions, and limitations. Definitions and elements of crimes are explained, and defenses to crimes are thoroughly analyzed. Each chapter offers guidance to help students understand what is important, including chapter outlines, key terms, learning objectives, Legal News boxes that highlight current criminal law issues, and Quick Checks that cue the reader to stop and answer a question or two concerning the material just covered. Unique Exploring Case Law boxes offer guidance in using the accompanying cases, which are provided on the book’s website. A robust collection of instructor support materials addresses teaching and learning issues

Joycelyn M. Pollock (Ph.D., State University of New York at Albany; J.D., University of Houston) is a Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice at Texas State University, San Marcos, teaching courses in the areas of women in the criminal justice system, ethics, law, and corrections. She has also delivered training to police officers, probation officers, parole officers, constables, and other groups in the areas of sexual harassment, ethics, and criminology. Service to the profession includes a term as a member of the U.S. Office of Justice Programs Science Advisory Board, several editorial boards of journals such as Women & Criminal Justice and Crime & Delinquency, a Trustee-at-Large to the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, and President of the Southwest Association of Criminal Justice Educators. Pollock has published more than 25 books in the areas of ethics, female criminality, corrections, and law. She has received numerous awards, including the Outstanding Alumni Award of SUNY-Albany, the Bruce Smith Sr. Award from the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS), and the Presidential Seminar Award from Texas State University, and, in 2015, she was awarded the ACJS Academy Fellow Award for distinguished teaching and scholarly achievement and the Coramae Richey Mann Award for contributions to the field in the area of gender and minority studies.

Review:

In the highly readable Eleventh edition, Pollock enhances student knowledge and learning with pedagogical tools that will engage students in legal issues and improve their understanding of the criminal law. The book incorporates cases, summaries, and examples that encourage active learning. It is highly relevant and current. The new edition enables students to relate cases to their future professional lives.
