Criminal Justice tackles the big questions: How can crime be explained? Is crime rising or falling, and if so, why? How do the police operate? How do the courts work? What is the meaning of a 'life' sentence? What is the link between crime and mental instability? Why are Māori over-represented in the criminal justice system? How do we deal with young offenders? How do judicial miscarriages arise? Do the stories we read about crime in the media reflect reality? And, how does justice operate in the criminal underworld?
In this new textbook, leading scholars from criminology, history, journalism, law, psychology, sociology, and other fields take us inside New Zealand's criminal justice system.
