BOOK EXCERPT:

Native Americans are disproportionately represented as offenders in the U.S. criminal justice system. However, until recently there was little investigation into the reasons. Furthermore, there has been little acknowledgment of the positive contributions of Native Americans to the criminal justice system- in rehabilitating offenders, aiding victims, and supporting service providers. This book offers a valuable and contemporary overview of how the American criminal justice system impacts Native Americans on both sides of the law. Contributors- many of whom are Native Americans- rank among the top scholars in their fields. Some of the chapters treat broad subjects, including crime, police, courts, victimization, corrections, and jurisdiction. Others delve into more specific topics, including hate crimes against Native Americans, state-corporate crimes against Native Americans, tribal peacemaking, and cultural stresses of police officers. Separate chapters are devoted to women and juveniles.

This updated second edition provides an overview of the origin and development of the American criminal justice system, from the founding of Jamestown, the first English settlement, and tracing history to the events of September 11, 2001. Each chapter begins with an overview of the social, political, and economic forces that shaped society during a given era in American history. What follows, then, is an overview of the ordinary and extraordinary crimes of each era, and how the criminal justice system (police, courts, corrections, and juvenile justice) responded to these crimes, thereby conveying how the system developed over time.

Finally, an alternative critical approach to introductory criminal justice! Criminal Justice in America: A Critical View paves the way for discussions on controversial issues of racial and economic inequities found in our criminal justice system. This text helps students understand the perspective of the typical subjects of the criminal justice system: the poor, the minorities, women, and the young all of whom comprise the majority of both victims and victimizers. In the words of one reviewer, "Nowhere have I read an intro ductory text that simply tells it like it is. A text of this kind is long overdue." Another reviewer describes Criminal Justice in America: A Critical View as "a well-written introductory criminal justice text that clearly delineates itself from the other leading texts. Most important, the critical perspective taken by the authors is an excellent depiction of crime and justice in America."
