This collection of readings is a one-of-a-kind-examining current policies, practices and issues impacting the field of criminal justice today. Leaving no stone unturned, contributing authors (all leaders in the field) explore a wide range of topics such as gangs, gender and race, war on drugs, terrorism, crime victims, correctional issues and computer-based technologies. Linking the past, present, and future of criminal justice, the authors discuss the issues currently impacting the system, the challenges that lie ahead, and their visions for how these issues will be handled in the next century.
