Samaha's CRIMINAL JUSTICE, Seventh Edition has retained its role as a leader in the introduction to criminal justice market. It offers a unique decision-making approach that engages students and promotes critical thinking while providing a thorough and engaging introduction to the field. This edition retains and enhances these strengths with such features as "Fact or Fiction?"-a new feature that gets students thinking about the major topics at the beginning of each chapter, "Make Your Decision"-a new multi-page section that concludes each chapter, and "Criminal Justice and Technology" -a new feature that highlights the impact of rapidly changing technology on the system. The new format includes a rich variety of full-color illustrations and photos that add to the engaging writing to hold students' interest. Also, the book features up-to-the-minute coverage of the hottest topics in the field, including the impact of world terrorism and rapidly changing technologies. This manageable 15-chapter text now includes separate chapters on the explanations of criminal behavior (Chapter 3), on trial and guilty pleas (Chapter 10) and on juvenile justice (Chapter 15).
