Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 002399181X, Hardcover)Growing out of the authors' thirty years of teaching, this new book thoroughly examines crime, crime's effects, and society's reactions to crime. Comprehensive, engaging coverage gives students practical tools for analyzing, demystifying, and finally, understanding the workings of America's criminal justice system. Coverage of crime victims is stronger than that of other books in the field; and significant attention is devoted to the status of youthful offenders, when treated in the juvenile system and when treated as adults. Personal perspectives and descriptions of the actual experiences of witnesses, police, defense attorneys, judges, and prison guards...as well as those of victims and offenders...enrich the presentation throughout.
