Crime and Justice : Learning through Cases Paperback / softback

Part of the Learning through Cases series


Crime and Justice offers a comprehensive introduction to the U.S criminal justice system through fifteen historical and contemporary case studies.

The third edition has been revised and streamlined throughout, featuring new material on race, the war on drugs, police violence, "stand your ground" laws and gun laws, and more. Each chapter opens with an engaging case study followed by an explanatory chapter that teaches core concepts, key terms, and critical issues.

The cases serve multiple learning objectives: illustrating concepts applied in real life; exploring sociological issues of race, class, gender, and power; and teaching students the law and processes of the justice system.

Crime and Justice is excellent for any course that introduces students to the criminal justice system. A complimentary Instructor's Manual and Test Bank are available, as well as an open-access Companion Website for students that includes interactive flashcards, links to online video and media, and other learning material.
