article description
This updated Second Edition surveys the incredibly dynamic field of criminal justice policy in the United States. The collection addresses how criminal policy issues are framed, identifies participants in the policy process, discusses how policy is made, and considers the constraints and opportunities facing policy-makers. Findings are linked to broader institutional, cultural, and global criminal justice trends, and are used to determine what current research reveals about crime policy and democratic governance. U.S. Criminal Justice Policy: A Contemporary Reader, Second Edition encourages readers to engage in a dialogue about criminal justice policy, as well as think about the potential for criminal justice reform.
