This seventh edition ofJustice Administration: Police, Courts, and Corrections Managementcontinues its examination of all facets of the criminal justice system as well as several related matters of interest to prospective and current administrators. The general goal of the book is to inform the reader of the primary people, practices, and terms that are utilized in justice administration.  The author has held several administrative and academic positions in a criminal justice career spanning more than 35 years; thus, this book’s 16 chapters contain a palpable real-world flavor not found in most textbooks. 

Kenneth J. Ken Peak (Ph.D., University of Kansas) is co-author of six editions of Community Policing and Problem Solving: Strategies and Practices (Pearson Education). He is also author or co-author of several related journal articles concerning community policing (as it relates to ethics, repeat victimization, training, maintaining neighborhood order, planning and implementation, problem-oriented responses to homelessness, and improving citizen perceptions of the police) and has presented a number of related scholarly papers. He also co-authored three monographs (i.e., problem solving Guides ) for the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, the topics of which were crimes involving tourism, cruising, and illegal street racing; he is often contacted by print and electronic media in the U.S. and Canada requesting interviews and written op-eds in those regards. He also has practitionerrsquo;s experience-twice being a university police chief executive. Finally, he has previously co-authored three encyclopedic pieces, and is thus familiar with the fundamental purposes, rationale, and approaches of such publications.
