Crime and Justice offers a comprehensive introduction to the U.S criminal justice system through fifteen historical and contemporary case studies. The third edition has been revised and streamlined throughout, featuring new material on race, the war on drugs, police violence, "stand your ground" laws and gun laws, and more. Each chapter opens with an engaging case study followed by an explanatory chapter that teaches core concepts, key terms, and critical issues. The cases serve multiple learning objectives: illustrating concepts applied in real life; exploring sociological issues of race, class, gender, and power; and teaching students the law and processes of the justice system. Crime and Justice is excellent for any course that introduces students to the criminal justice system. A complimentary Instructor's Manual and Test Bank are available, as well as an open-access Companion Website for students that includes interactive flashcards, links to online video and media, and other learning material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The new edition of this groundbreaking text makes, yet again, an important pedagogical contribution to the field. Indeed, there is no other book like it, and the topics covered are timely and of great interest to students and faculty. It should be in the libraries of all of us who teach criminology and criminal justice. -- Walter S. DeKeseredy, West Virginia University
An extraordinarily effective textbook that, by bringing to life a series of key criminal justice cases, provides students with an in-depth understanding and appreciation of the role of law in attempting (not always successfully) to achieve justice in the United States. As was the case with the previous edition, Carolyn Boyes-Watson once again has written a book that will challenge and fully engage the best students while remaining fully accessible to all students. It is, in my opinion, an indispensable teaching tool. -- William P. Schaefer, Hofstra University
