“Criminal (In)Justice: A Critical Introduction is a critical, introductory discussion and analysis of the criminal justice system. The text situates components of the criminal justice system within their relevant historical, political, and social contexts. It is the ideal textbook for professors who want students to critically assess and understand the American criminal justice system.”
“Criminal (In)Justice presents an overview of the criminal justice system from the angle of critical criminology instead of the traditional ‘this is who we are and this is what we do’ approach. This book makes students ask why the system is what it is and why it does what it does—and what are the results of those actions.”
“This is an excellent introductory criminal justice text that presents criminal justice material in an accessible format for freshman while addressing the complexities of race, gender, class, and inequality.”
“A critical perspective on criminal justice that examines not only the basics we need our students to have but exposes them to it from a more sociological perspective, with ideas about inequality, discrimination, flaws in the CJ system, etc.”
“This is a very readable, critical introduction to the criminal justice system. It’s unique in how it discusses inequalities, politics, and power relationships in the system as integral to how the system works.”
“Criminal (In)Justice uses a critical approach based on the sociological perspective to examine core topics in criminal justice on law enforcement, courts, and punishment as well as other important special topics and the role and intersectionality of race, gender, class, and inequality within the CJ system. It includes recent, real world examples to illustrate these issues and challenges students to think critically."
"An excellent new text with a more robust and timely examination of criminology."
