Additional Book Details

Law and Criminal Justice: An Introductory Survey accomplishes something that should have occurred long ago. It brings together in one easy-to-read textbook every important legal subject relevant to the broad field of criminal justice.

Within its covers are straightforward explanations of criminal law, search and seizure law, the privilege against self-incrimination, right to counsel, law of evidence, sentencing law, inmate rights, juvenile law, death penalty jurisprudence and much, much more. By surveying the law as it relates to the criminal justice system, students will be introduced to the inner-struggles that have taken place and continue to take place in our police, courts, and correctional agencies. In addition to providing a distillation of criminal justice agency experience, the book helps students to improve their skills to think critically, logically, and ethically.
