9781305633742: The American System of Criminal Justice

This classic best seller, commonly referred to as "The Eagle," helps students discover the challenges of pursuing justice in our society and identify the roles individuals play in the criminal justice system. Using an interdisciplinary lens, THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE, 15th Edition, presents elements from criminology, sociology, law, history, psychology, and political science -- challenging students to ask questions and recognize contemporary problems as the means to build an understanding of the system's components and stages as well as its human consequences and policy challenges. The text offers solid scholarship and approachable writing, and holds student attention with compelling events and cases, thereby preparing them to participate in the system as citizens and future criminal justice practitioners. What's more, the MindTap that accompanies this text helps students practice and master techniques and key concepts while engaging them with video cases, career scenarios, visual summaries, and more.

About the Author:

The late George F. Cole was Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Connecticut. He was recognized for outstanding teaching and research and in 1995 was named a Fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. A specialist in the administration of criminal justice, he published extensively on such topics as prosecution, courts and corrections. He developed and directed the graduate corrections program at the University of Connecticut and was a Fellow at the National Institute of Justice (1988). Among his other accomplishments, he was granted two awards under the Fulbright-Hays Program to conduct criminal justice research in England and the former Yugoslavia. He co-authored several other Cengage Learning/Wadsworth criminal justice titles, including THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE, AMERICAN CORRECTIONS, AMERICAN CORRECTIONS IN BRIEF and THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM: POLITICS AND POLICIES.

Christopher E. Smith is Professor of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University (MSU). He earned degrees at Harvard University, the University of Bristol (England), the University of Tennessee, and the University of Connecticut. Trained as a lawyer and social scientist, he is the author of 25 books and more than 120 scholarly articles on law, courts, and criminal justice policy. He has been recognized as an outstanding teacher with MSU's "Teacher-Scholar Award" and "Social Science Alumni Association Outstanding Teaching Award." His other books with Cengage Learning include CRIMINAL JUSTICE IN AMERICA, 9th Edition, LAW AND CONTEMPORARY CORRECTIONS, CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS: MYTHS AND REALITIES, and CRIMINAL PROCEDURE.

Christina DeJong is Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University.

Her scholarly research on genocide, recidivism, domestic violence, police-community interactions, and other topics has been published in such journals as Criminology, Justice Quarterly, Feminist Criminology, and The Journal of Family Violence. Her current research focuses on gender and sexuality issues in criminology and criminal justice, as well as violence against women in conflict and genocide. A member of the Michigan State University faculty since 1994, she has taught courses on research methods, statistical analysis, genocide, and women and criminal justice.
