This text covers the history of criminal justice from a critical perspective and explores the historical biases of the criminal justice system.

The overall theme of this book is that both the making of laws and the interpretation and application of these laws throughout the history of the criminal justice system has, historically, been class, gender, and racially biased. Moreover, one of the major functions of the criminal justice system has been to control those from the most disadvantaged sectors of the population, that is, the “dangerous classes.” This theme is explored using a historical model, tracing the development of criminal law through the development of the police institution, the juvenile justice system, and the prison system.

The book is ripped from the bottom. I'm afraid that it's going to fall apart on me. I won't be able to put it in my backpack for the same reason. I paid almost $80 and this is the condition of the book? This is ridiculous and disappointing... Is it so hard to take care of a book?... it came on time (before 8 p.m.) like it was supposed to at least. its still a major ripoff. jeezus

  • Jack
good book I enjoyed reading it.
This book provides absolutely no structure and is all over the place. It definitely doesn't help me with my class.
