Summary

Widely used and widely respected, AMERICA'S COURTS AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, Tenth Edition, offers a comprehensive explanation of the courts and the criminal justice system, presented in a streamlined, straightforward manner that appeals to instructors and students alike. Neubauer and Fradella's crisp, clear writing style, characterized by careful chunking of material into small sections within chapters, ensures that readers gain a firm handle on the material, while the text's innovative ''courtroom workhouse'' model, which focuses on the interrelationships among the judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney, brings the courtroom to life. This popular text is known for the way it gives students a true glimpse what it is like to work within the American criminal justice system, and the tenth edition is no exception. This modern edition offers coverage that reflects recent policy shaping and headline-making developments as well as incorporation of additional student-learning and review tools.
