Many "radical" texts on criminal justice and criminology argue that the operations of criminal justice and the definition of criminality are essentially political. These texts are, however, largely ideological and entirely theoretical. In contrast, The Politics of Criminal Justice shows exactly how politics in its everyday sense affects the workings of criminal justice and the generation of criminal definitions. From interest groups to Presidents, this book provides the practical, down-to-earth account of the relationship between political science and criminal justice
