Riassunto: Cole and Smith's classic best-seller examines criminal justice across several disciplines, and presents elements from criminology, sociology, law, history, psychology, and political science. Broad coverage of the facts, an interesting writing style, and compelling delivery of current events make THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE one of the best texts available for an in-depth introduction to the American criminal justice system.
