Description

Crime, Law, and Justice provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the field of criminal justice and the criminal justice system. Based on both criminological research and theoretical analysis, the anthology addresses the types and extent of crimes, the role of criminal and constitutional law, law enforcement, corrections, probation, and parole. Students will read articles on why people commit crimes, the criminal man, and crime, criminals, and victims in a global context. They will learn about ethics in criminology and crime control policy. The material also addresses community policing, due process, victimology, and the scale of imprisonment in the United States. Throughout its six sections, Crime, Law, and Justice asks critical questions about the criminal justice system. Why does it function as it does, and are there ways in which it could be improved? Crime, Law, and Justice is suitable for introductory courses in criminology and criminal justice. It is also a valuable tool for classes in sociology, police administration, and criminal or constitutional law. Desir J. M. Anastasia holds a Ph.D. in sociology from Wayne State University. She has taught at Wayne State, Oakland University, and San Diego State University. Her areas of research specialization include domestic violence and sexual assault. Douglas B. Klutz, MPA, received his Master of Public Administration degree with a concentration in policy analysis from the University of North Carolina, Wilmington. Professor Klutz is a full-time instructor in the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Alabama. In addition to teaching, he serves as the internship and advising director. Prior to his academic career, Professor Klutz worked with the Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology, a consortium of public and private institutions whose mission is to facilitate the transfer of first responder technologies available at the federal level to state and local governments. Mark M. Lanier, Ph.D., received his interdisciplinary doctoral degree with a concentration in criminology, sociology, and psychology from Michigan State University. Dr. Lanier is a professor and Chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Alabama and is the university's McNair Fellow for 2013. He has over 60 scholarly publications, including Research Methods in Criminology: A Mixed Methods Approach, co-authored with Lisa Briggs, and Essential Criminology, co-authored with Stuart Henry. Currently, Dr. Lanier is developing epidemiological criminology as a bridge between public health, medical sociology, and criminal justice.
