Summary

This best-selling text presents criminal justice as a dynamic, ever-changing field, emphasizing how the concepts and processes of criminal justice are constantly evolving. Authors Siegel and Senna emphasize a comprehensive and balanced approach to the three major areas of criminal justice (police, courts, and corrections) and to theory, research, and policy issues, with a focus on generating students' interest in the criminal justice field. This text is the ultimate tool for complete student preparation and provides all of the up-to-date coverage of structural and procedural changes in the criminal justice system that instructors require, ultimately helping students understand the critical issues in the field, and the impact they have on the system.

Benefits:

  • NEW! In response to reviewer feedback, the language in the Tenth Edition has been simplified, wherever possible, to reduce redundancy and clarify concepts. To help students understand difficult and important key concepts, author Larry Siegel has added numerous new visual aids, such as graphs, charts, and grids.
  • "Criminal Justice and Technology" boxes provide students with the latest information on how technology is being used effectively by the police, courts, and corrections. Topics include crime mapping, global positioning satellites (GPS), body scanning, and pulsed-radar monitoring systems.
  • "Images of Justice" boxes include fascinating discussions of high-profile trials and media portrayals of the police, courts, and corrections. A popular feature with students, they have been rewritten by the authors to include more contemporary examples.
  • Other boxed features include "Critical Thinking Skills" and "InfoTrac College Edition Exercises," both of which are designed to encourage students to apply chapter material to the various topics covered in each feature-expanding the minds of the students beyond just the words on a page.
  • "International Justice" boxes focus on criminal justice issues around the world, showing students interesting differences, or similarities, between the U.S. system and other countries. The U.S. crime rate is also put into perspective by comparing it to international crime, showing how different systems and cultures respond to crime.
  • "Race, Gender, and Ethnicity in Criminal Justice" boxes look at the growing impact women, children, and diverse ethnic groups have on police, courts, and corrections and educate students on this growing cultural phenomenon.
  • "Analyzing Criminal Justice Issues" boxes contain inserts on intriguing issues concerning criminal justice policies or processes, pushing students to think critically about the issues that affect our society. Topics include issues related to gun control, police oversight and citizen review boards, rehabilitation, and restorative justice in the community. "Critical Thinking" sections within the boxes help students conceptualize problems and develop their own opinions.
  • "Law in Review" boxes examine the major Supreme Court cases that influence and control the justice system and allow students to study key cases and develop their own opinions on the rulings.
  • "Perspectives on Justice" boxes analyze how competing views have influenced the way the system of justice operates.
  • NEW! To help students better organize and understand the material presented in the text, Chapter Objectives have been added to the beginning of each chapter and end-of-chapter Key Terms now feature page references. In addition, the Chapter Summaries have been rewritten to clearly tie them to the Chapter Outline and Chapter Objectives.
  • NEW! This Tenth Edition features an incredible integration of current high-interest news events through CNN! Each Chapter-Opener includes a vignette from a recent CNN news story. The actual video clip of this news story is available on the new FREE Student CD-ROM. Once students view the video, they will be asked to complete critical thinking activities, to help them draw connections between recent events and the criminal justice system.
  • NEW! A new student CD-ROM is packaged FREE with every new copy of Siegel and Senna's Tenth Edition. This outstanding student study tool contains chapter-based quizzes and topical CNN video clips with critical-thinking activities that are tied to the Chapter-Openers. A CD-ROM icon appears in the margins throughout the text, where appropriate, to direct students to chapter-related content and reinforcement activities on the CD-ROM.
  • NEW! This edition includes the most thorough coverage of cutting-edge topics such as "Peacemaking" criminology, biological and psychological theories of criminology, "re-entry," and specific (hands-on) examples of policing programs (i.e., COMPSTAT community policing model).
  • NEW! Chapter 14, "Community Corrections: Probation, Intermediate Sanctions, and Restorative Justice," includes a new focus on restorative justice.
  • NEW! To help students do successful research on the Internet, a new end-of-chapter boxed feature entitled "Doing Research on the Web" contains InfoTrac College Edition article suggestions, Opposing Viewpoints activities, and critical-thinking questions. Web links appear in the margins throughout the text and direct students to helpful Internet sites.
  • The authors apply a topic-focused orientation, covering such issues as preventive detention, shock incarceration, community policing, alternative sentencing, gun control, the war on drugs, and the death penalty.
  • With a strong student-centered focus, this text presents modern issues while providing a historical perspective on criminal justice concepts, giving students a view of how our system used to be and how it is today.
