Publisher Comments:

Widely used and widely respected, AMERICA'S COURTS AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, Tenth Edition, offers a comprehensive explanation of the courts and the criminal justice system, presented in a streamlined, straightforward manner that appeals to instructors and students alike. Neubauer and Fradella's crisp, clear writing style, characterized by careful chunking of material into small sections within chapters, ensures that readers gain a firm handle on the material, while the text's innovative "courtroom workhouse" model, which focuses on the interrelationships among the judge, prosecutor, and defense attorney, brings the courtroom to life. This popular text is known for the way it gives students a true glimpse what it is like to work within the American criminal justice system, and the tenth edition is no exception. This modern edition offers coverage that reflects recent policy shaping and headline-making developments as well as incorporation of additional student-learning and review tools.

Book News Annotation:

This undergraduate-level textbook by Neubauer (U. of New Orleans) is intended to be of use in criminal justice, sociology, political science, and other courses concentrating on the role of US criminal courts both within the criminal justice and within society as a whole. Emphasizing the dynamics of courthouse justice, he has adopted three themes for the textbook: the major structures and basic legal concepts that underlie the criminal courts, the courthouse processes of applying abstract rules to concrete situations, and the controversies that arise out of both of the above. He introduces the roles of the courthouse actors, describes the processing of the accused from arrest to trial; discusses sentencing options and sentencing decisions; and offers chapters on the appellate, lower, and juvenile courts. For the new edition, Neubauer has retained the same basic chapter structure but added greater material on legal ethics, civil compensation for the wrongfully accused, the Moussaoui trial, the "war on terrorism," domestic violence and domestic violence courts, problem-solving courts, racial and gender diversity on the bench, and a number of other topics. Much of the material is illustrated in the context of the murder trial of Shareef Cousin, the youngest person on death row until his conviction was overturned on appeal, but a range of other case material is incorporated as well.
