Description: Samaha's CRIMINAL JUSTICE, Seventh Edition has retained its role as a leader in the introduction to criminal justice market. It offers a unique decision-making approach that engages students and promotes critical thinking while providing a thorough and engaging introduction to the field. This edition retains and enhances these strengths with such features as "Fact or Fiction?"?a new feature that gets students thinking about the major topics at the beginning of each chapter, "Make Your Decision"?a new multi-page section that concludes each chapter, and "Criminal Justice and Technology" ?a new feature that highlights the impact of rapidly changing technology on the system. The new format includes a rich variety of full-color illustrations and photos that add to the engaging writing to hold students' interest. Also, the book features up-to-the-minute coverage of the hottest topics in the field, including the impact of world terrorism and rapidly changing technologies. This manageable 15-chapter text now includes separate chapters on the explanations of criminal behavior (Chapter 3), on trial and guilty pleas (Chapter 10) and on juvenile justice (Chapter 15).
