The book is a clear and highly accessible introduction to the theories and policies of the criminal justice system. The book is written for students studying criminology as all or part of their degree who need a simple, yet authoritative introduction to the subject which they can rely upon for clarity. The writing style is one which is informative, but manages to convey to the reader the enthusiasm the author has for subject matter. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of criminal justice issues. These include introductions to criminal statistics, explanations for crime and disorder, historical perspectives on crime; policing, the courts, justifications for punishment; prisons and community punishment; the media and crime; and finally the emergence of community safety and anti-social behaviour policies. The text is packed full of brief extracts and diagrams which help the reader to understand and relate the issues discussed.
