This three-volume work offers a comprehensive review of the pivotal concepts, measures, theories, and practices that comprise criminology and criminal justice. No longer just a subtopic of sociology, criminology has become an independent academic field of study that incorporates scholarship from numerous disciplines including psychology, political science, behavioral science, law, economics, public health, family studies, social work, and many others. The three-volume Encyclopedia of Criminology presents the latest research as well as the traditional topics which reflect the field's multidisciplinary nature in a single, authoritative reference work. More than 525 alphabetically arranged entries by the leading authorities in the discipline comprise this definitive, international resource. The pivotal concepts, measures, theories, and practices of the field are addressed with an emphasis on comparative criminology and criminal justice. While the primary focus of the work is on American criminology and contemporary criminal justice in the United States, extensive global coverage of other nations' justice systems is included, and the increasing international nature of crime is explored thoroughly. Providing the most up-to-date scholarship in addition to the traditional theories on criminology, the Encyclopedia of Criminology is the essential one-stop reference for students and scholars alike to explore the broad expanse of this multidisciplinary field.

This Fifth Edition of America's Courts and the Criminal Justice System provides readers with a fascinating overview of how this nation's court system actually works to administer justice. Exploring a range of criminal cases - from the points of arrest, prosecution, and appeal, author David W. Neubauer takes readers through all stages of court processes. Cutting through the legalese, he explains legal concepts and court structures and illustrates the working dynamics that occur within the court system. As a result, readers learn to see how and why various outcomes - such as the setting of bail, sentencing, and so on - are actually determined. Taking an objective stance, Neubauer views the problems and solutions inherent within our courts and criminal justice system. He puts public sentiment concerning crime and just punishment on the stand and evaluates current proposals for reforming our criminal court system.

This book explains the criminal justice system and how criminal cases are processed via the police, the court, and the correctional system. To give readers a better understanding of how the criminal justice systems works the author follows one case throughout the book to demonstrate how it is processed step-by-step through the justice system. It uses critical thinking exercises and Point/Counterpoint debate sections to explore hot issues from different points of view including parole, prisoners with HIV, crime reporting practices' impact on minority groups, and inmates with mental illness. Detailed discussions i.e., who gets arrested and why and what role a defendant's appearance plays are among the many topics addressed, which makes this a compelling text. Covers the steps of the criminal justice system including entry into the system; processing and pretrial procedures; trials, sentencing and appeals; and corrections. Includes information on how we address crime in society. Explores important issues within the system such as victim impact statements, who reports crime?; the investigative process; factors influencing arrest; case processing & the grand jury; the arraignment process; jury trials & sentencing; and the appeals process. Appropriate for introductory criminal justice courses and for those seeking to better understand the criminal justice system.

Following the brutal 1954 murders of two children in Sioux City, Iowa, police attempted to quell public hysteria by arresting 20 men whom the authorities never claimed had anything to do with the crimes. Labelled as sexual psychopaths these gay men were sentenced to a mental institution until 'cured'. Shedding a harsh light on 1950s attitudes toward homosexuality, this carefully researched account of this horrendous event shows how the paranoia of the McCarthy era destroyed the lives of gay men and exposes a dark chapter in the history of post-war America.
