Summary: First published in 1972, this classic text helped define how research affects policy in the criminal justice system.

This 28-article reader allows students to see research-framed debates discussed in our administration of justice. Flexible in its design, this work ...show morepromotes a more critical understanding of the structure and function of the criminal justice system, but it also invites attention to critical cross cutting themes, such as discretion, occupational role conception, the sources of power and authority inside institutions, and how the public may impact our choices of laws and the way laws are written.
