Australian Criminal Justice Fifth Edition provides a complete overview of the criminal justice process. It analyses the influences that shape criminal justice and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in all jurisdictions. The book guides readers step-by-step through the stages of a case – from investigation to sentencing and explores the social context of criminal justice in terms of the rights of the individual, community responsibilities, and international guarantees.
Now in its fifth edition and 20 years since the first, Australian Criminal Justice remains the authoritative introduction to the criminal justice system.
Crime, Criminality and Criminal Justice, third edition, is the complete introduction to everything students need to know as they begin their studies in crime and criminology. It has been updated with the most current examples and references, as well as emerging issues and trends.
It covers key subject areas including what crime is, types of crime, crime theory, systems and institutions of crime, crime and social inequality, and difference and criminal justice--all within an Australian context.
Written in an engaging style, this new edition encourages critical thinking about the subject matter and features thought-provoking discussion questions and issues for consideration. This text will prove to be a valuable reference throughout a criminology degree.
