Written by renowned authors George F. Cole and Christopher E. Smith, Criminal Justice in America (ISBN 9780495809821) is an engaging textbook that shows students real-world examples that they may actually encounter when they start to work. It also helps students understand the role of the criminal justice system in society, as well as explore possible career opportunities. Topics like crime and the criminal justice system, the police, the courts, the corrections, and contemporary issues are explained thoroughly. Authors Cole and Smith focus on crime and justice in America, criminal justice and the rule of law, and the challenges of policing. The textbook also tackles courts and adjudication, pretrial procedures, plea bargaining, criminal trial, punishment and sentencing, probation and intermediate sanctions in community corrections, and incarceration and prison society. The last part of Criminal Justice in America talks about reentry into the community, technology and criminal justice, and juvenile justice. Already on its 6th edition, this textbook now includes a section explaining how technology has made a great impact on the criminal justice process. Information on salaries, real-world job qualifications, and outlooks in the ‘careers' section have also been updated. Each chapter features summary sections to make reviewing easier. The authors also made helpful notes to dispel myths about the criminal justice system, whenever applicable. Students have access to supplements, including the companion website and study guide that offers test items and quizzes. George Cole also wrote The American System of Criminal Justice, and co-wrote Study Guide for Cole/Smith's Criminal Justice in America with Christopher Smith.
