Details: Product Description What is law? What is deviance? What is justice? How is justice achieved through law, punishment, and criminal justice agencies? Now in its third edition, Foundations of Criminal Justice uses a unique approach that provides students with the framework and the intellectual tools that they will need in order to critically analyze and evaluate the nature, sources, scope, purposes, and practical limitations of the criminal justice system. This is the only introductory survey text that moves beyond a description of the criminal justice system, helping students understand the role of criminal justice in their lives as criminal justice practitioners and as active citizens.
