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.
