About Crime and Criminal Justice, Second Edition

Updated with new content and current controversies that facilitate critical thinking, debate, and application of the concepts, Crime and Criminal Justice: Concepts and Controversies, Second Edition by Stacy L. Mallicoat provides accessible and concise coverage of all relevant aspects of the criminal justice system, as well as unique chapters on victims and criminal justice policy. Using an innovative format designed to increase student engagement and critical thinking, each chapter is followed by two Current Controversy debates that dive into a critical issue in criminal justice. These features challenge misconceptions by providing a balanced debate of both the pros and the cons of each issue and are followed by probing questions to help students think critically about timely topics. With contemporary examples that students can easily apply and a broad range of effective learning tools, this practical text helps students go beyond the surface toward a deeper understanding of the criminal justice system.
