Description

Why is the composition of the prison population substantially different from that of the larger society? Why is corporate crime so neglected by the criminal justice system? What have been the results of the war on drugs? Crime, Justice, and Society explores these and other significant questions in a compelling introduction to criminology. Highlighting issues of class, race, ethnicity, and gender, the authors present the study of crime and criminals in an accessible manner. While innovative, their book is organized as a core text for standard introductory criminology courses.show more
