Criminal Justice Today, 12/e, continues to lead as the gold-standard for criminal justice texts. Best-selling, student- and instructor-preferred, and time-tested Schmalleger is the most current and popular text in the market. The text guides criminal justice students in the struggle to find a satisfying balance between freedom and security, and focuses on the crime picture in America and on the three traditional elements of the criminal justice system: police, courts, and corrections.
