Criminal Justice provides a thought-provoking and critical introduction to the challenges faced by the UK's criminal justice system including policing, sentencing and punishment at the beginning of the 21st Century. Expert contributors present an overview of particular areas of the criminal justice system or issues relevant to its operation, outlining the political and historical context, detailing key legislation, policies and procedures, and challenging students to engage with current debates. Each chapter features questions, summaries, tables, diagrams, annotated further reading and weblinks, to ensure the book is as accessible and engaging as possible, and provides clear guidance on further study. An illuminating glossary of key terms is also included.
